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.
You can find everything you need in this city. The only down side is that there is no malls so if you want to go clothes shopping you may have to travel around to do all your clothing shopping. Besides that other types of stores are very accessible. There are many boutiques scattered throughout the city. Also there is every type of food you could want and a lot of local restaurants.
