Hi everyone,

My wife and I are moving from Los Angeles to Washington DC as my wife has just been accepted to Howard University Pharmacy school. I've been doing some researches online around DC areas and found out that most people recommend Adams Morgan or Dupont Circle as safe neighborhood near Howard U. However, these areas are too expensive for my budget and I was wondering if you can suggest any other place near Howard U that's safe. My wife is looking to walk/bus/metro to Howard U.

We're initially looking to find a furnished studio or 1 bed-room for the first month below $1800/month. Then, 1 bed-room apartment below $1300/month.

Any suggestion would be really helpful!

Thank you!

Ugh.. the neighborhood surrounding the University is not the best. I might go with some parts of Eckington to stay a bit on the safer side. The immediate area though is no good for the money spent for it.

Disagree. This is totally off. The neighborhoods surrounding Howard are Ledroit Park and Bloomingdale. They have their patches, but are for the most part nice areas. I would check out these listings.
