The Lifestyle You Deserve


Varsity is ideally located near countless bars, trendy restaurants, and shops, with the Foggy Bottom Metro Station only 2 blocks away!

The National Mall is your backyard and the White House is right down the street. This historic neighborhood on the southwest edge of DC sits amid the most famous and beloved landmarks of the nation’s capital, giving residents one of the most scenic urban environments in the United States.

With homes and apartments intertwined amid the federal office buildings and the George Washington University campus, both government workers and college students are able to get around easily on foot or by bicycle. It’s also an excellent location for medical personnel working at George Washington University Hospital, as well as university faculty and staff. DC’s famous dining and nightlife are close at hand, and Metro service makes it easy to reach anything that’s a little too far outside of walking distance.

Living in Foggy Bottom - Washington DC

Experience the Charm of North DC


Hhome to the Watergate Complex, the George Washington University (GWU), the Kennedy Center, and the Department of State. Green space can be found along the Potomac and at Rock Creek Park. George Washington University Hospital is located nearby and is one of the best hospitals in the area.

Foggy Bottom gets its name from the morning mist that comes off of the Potomac River. The neighborhood stretches up to include the West End. From here, you can walk down 23rd Street to the Lincoln Memorial, walk west to M Street and Georgetown, or walk north to Dupont Circle very easily.

Foggy Bottom overflows with students, who are found sitting on benches and studying in GWU’s quad or local cafes such as Au Bon Pain. A Whole Foods on GWU’s campus is always packed with academics and personnel from the International Monetary Fund and The World Bank. It is certainly a logistically convenient location despite the hoards of undergrad students that convene regularly.

Foggy Bottom is dominated by two groups: residents and college students attending George Washington University. The students provide a vibrant enthusiasm for the city and all of the opportunities it has to offer. Not to mention the amenities of multi-use office buildings that also host stores and dining venues like Whole Foods or Circa Foggy Bottom.
