Hello students! We here at HRL are so excited to share this upcoming program with everyone! Introducing The Wonk Ball, "A semi-formal event!" We know the past couple of years have been nothing short of interesting, and we wanted to provide everyone with a classic experience: a school dance.
The Wonk Ball is a semi-formal, casual event where you can dance with your friends or decorate ornaments and celebrate the winter season. There will be snacks and photo opportunities. So come join us, this Sunday December 5th at 8 pm to bring in the winter season and destress before finals!

We love seeing our residents engaging in community! They came out for our "Let Gogh of Your Stress" event. #LiveAmerican

It’s been awhile since we’ve said hello. 👋 We’ve been working to explore ways to welcome a safe in-person return for a limited number of our students to campus this spring.

The Mid-semester residential experience will open approximately 1,250 spaces from March until the end of spring semester.

We are excited to welcome some of our students home, and we’re looking forward to the day when we all can return to campus.

Hi everyone! My daughter is moving from the AU area and is having a move out sale. We are selling all the furniture in her apartment including bedroom, living room/dining and kitchen. The TV in the picture is quite large as well (50"). Most of the items are around a year old and going for around $100 (with the exception of the couch). Prices are negotiable. If you are interested in any of the items, please message me here or text my daughter Natalie at (310) 739-1276.
Hi all! I'm renting my gorgeous 2 bedroom apartment in Adams Morgan - it's on the 3rd floor, 14 windows (read: incredible light), and great for WFH. $3500/m, move-in fees waived. Oh and fully furnished!!! So save $$$ - move in with just your suitcase. DM me for more information

PRIVATE ROOM IN HUGE TOWNHOUSE AVAILABLE BTW MARCH 1rst AND APRIL 1rst IN ARLINGTON VA, COURTHOUSE $1,136.50/month, NO Deposit, + amenities Looking to fill my unfurnished room in large Courthouse Townhouse (Arlington, VA) ASAP or March 1st! Rent is $1,136.50 and utilities run about $100 a month depending on the season including high speed internet, a monthly cleaning service and a compost. The bedroom has one included closet and fits a queen size bed, wardrobe, nightstands and more. I would prefer to keep my furniture but we can discuss about it if it really accommodates you to have a furnished room. The bathroom is shared with one tidy roommate. This huge town house has four roommates but because it's multilevel with huge space it never feels crowded. All the roommates are super friendly women between 24-31 years old. We all do our own thing but also hang out often, for cooking or movie evenings. The common spaces and kitchen are fully furnished. You also get access to our community pool, grilling area, gym, and concierge package reception! The house is in an awesome location in Arlington, 7 minutes walking distance to the Courthouse metro and equal walking distance to the bars and restaurants in Clarendon. Also a quick walk to Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Street parking is available or an assigned garage space is also available for a monthly fee. Please dm me a little about you for more info!
