It's a very wealthy area, which makes it difficult for non-wealthy people (such as students like myself at universities in the area) to live there, but it's a safe and pretty decent area to live. DC metro is bad - too expensive, not extensive enough, not easy to get places, takes a long time to get anywhere - but buses are pretty good.
The housing varies widely around the university. There are several apartment buildings nearby, but there are also nice neighborhoods with pleasant houses.
