I am attending Marymount University this fall and am looking for a reasonable place to live. I'm a single female in my early 20's..so I would prefer a safer area as I will be living in a new area on my own. Commuting is okay preferably if its by metro. Im giving myself a rent budget of about 1100...oh and they have to accept small dogs. If anyone can give me insight I would really appreciate it.

I work in Ballston and there are lots of Marymount students that live in the neighborhood due to the shuttle bus to the main campus. I would look on Craigslist for apartments in the Ballston or Virginia Square areas.

Default Nice neighborhoods in the school area. Sometimes home owners rent out

basement apartments with dedicated access. Craigslist or Post classifieds might offer listings.

I am going for their second degree nursing program. It is pricey but not as pricey as some of my other choices (NYU and Emory). The only bummer is they do not give scholarships even need based ones for people who are pursuing another degree. Student loans here I come!

I graduated from Marymount a few years ago, and though I lived on campus all 4 years, a lot of people I know lived in Ballston, or around Baily's Crossroads/7 Corners area. Craigslist will probably be your best bet. Just don't look at places by yourself - take a friend.

Enjoy MU, let me know if you have questions.
