Public Transportation

Public Transportation

Washington’s transit system is one of the best in the country; AU is four miles outside of the downtown area but students still have access to the subway. The nearest stop is about a mile walk away from campus, which is too far for some (especially in the winter), but many students use it to get back and forth in their commute. Others take one of the several regional buses that stop on campus. But the form of public transportation that students take most often is the shuttle program operated by the school, which runs through the campus and to surrounding areas.

AU’s about fifteen minutes outside of downtown Washington DC--great news for student renters. Trying to pay for rent in that part of the city will really stretch a wallet thin. AU students should be looking for apartments close to campus in communities like Forest Hills, Cleveland Park, Wesley Heights, McLean Gardens, and Tenleytown. There isn’t a substantial difference between rental prices in these areas, but students tend to look more towards Tenleytown and the Cleveland Park area because of access to the subway.
