The Georgetown shopping area caters to students and young adults, but housing in this area is expensive and at a premium. Many apartments do not rent to students, but rather to government and diplomatic employees. Occasionally townhouses are available and are rented to several students who share the cost. Families sometimes rent individual rooms, or basement apartments in their private homes. This area can be reached by any bus on Pennsylvania Avenue.
