Howard University has a limited amount of university housing for graduate and professional students. However, most law students live in communities and neighborhoods near the law school. You should plan to spend at least three or four weekdays in your search for suitable housing. Because the first year of law school demands a great deal of concentrated study time, first-year students are encouraged to seek housing with other law students, preferably those who are also in their first year. In that way, the study needs of each student are comparable and compatible. Housing information is provided to prospective students shortly after their admission.
