Cons

University sponsored housing

For affordable living options-income based, see below:

 Montgomery County Moderately Priced Dwelling Unit (MPDU) Program.

 DC Affordable Dwelling Unit (ADU).

Proof of income is required for both programs. If a student doesn’t have income, they can have a sponsor (parents, grandparent, or guardian) to submit income. Most properties will do a credit check. Use the list as a guide to identify the properties. Once a property has been identified, potential tenant should physically go to the property and speak to someone about income-based housing and make it an urgent need.
