Hi everyone,

I'm moving from Colorado to study MBA at GW, however I don't want to live near to the school because it is not affordable

Therefore, what are the apartments that near to Metro stations so I can go to the school without driving.

My limit is $1600 for one or two bedroom

any suggestions?

Will you be bringing a car at all? Many apartments on the blue line (which is the line for GWU) offer free shuttles to the metro during rush hour if you can schedule your classes to coincide, but that won't work if you need the metro during non business hours.

$1600 can get you a 1 bedroom place walking distance to the metro, but it won't be the nicest of apartments, believe it or not. Two bedrooms walking distance to the metro is unheard of for $1600.

Thanks CaliTerp07 for your reply.

Most of the apartment buildings around 395/King, 395/Seminary, and 395/Van Dorn all offer shuttles to either Van Dorn, King Street, or Pentagon City.

I believe Apartmentfinder.com or rent.com or one of those sites offers the ability to filter by metro access.

Halstead at the Metro (this is 704 sq ft. I believe: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/apa/2278492402.html (broken link) ; this one is over 800 sq ft http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/apa/2268846599.html (broken link)) and Wilton House (http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/apa/2276875266.html (broken link)) are right across the street from Dunn Loring Metro station.

1 bedrooms last summer were 1350 - 1400, but I think prices have creeped up to 1600 right now.

Halstead is nicer with more luxurious amenties and active social calendar, but condos are smaller and many have poor sunlight. Wilton House is less nice, but condos are bigger and have more windows.

Google and Craigslist are probably best resource for finding what is on market now. http://www.padmapper.com too.

There is another complex out near Vienna Metro, I forgot name Marquis or something like that.

I believe http://www.zipcar.com keeps a Honda Civic in Dunn Loring Metro parking lot if you only occasionally need a car.

http://www.wmata.com/ to see scheduled departures, transit times, and if you have to change trains to get to Georgetown.

Guys on computer forum always recommend Barton House (http://bartonhouse.com/) and Potomac Towers (http://www.virginiamanagement.com/potomactowers/) as great value in north Arlington area.
