Welcome from your Residential Life Staff

Welcome to the UC Washington Center. We hope that you will enjoy your stay with us. Our commitment is to help you make the most of your experience in Washington, DC and to make your apartments a comfortable place in which to live. Our Residential Life staff is directly responsible for the governance and well-being of our residents, and we actively support the academic mission of the UC Washington Center. Our staff seeks to develop a sense of community and to encourage students to exercise their creativity in an intellectually challenging and stimulating environment.

Please read the information in this handbook carefully because you are responsible for its contents and it is a part of your Housing contract. If you have any questions or need any assistance with any aspect of community living, please contact a staff member directly.
