THE HATCHET'S 2015 BEST OF NORTHWEST

Amsterdam Hall

BEST RESIDENCE HALL

Location: 2350 H St.

Runners up: South Hall, Shenkman Hall

 

Home to sophomores and Affinity Housing groups, the one or two-bedroom suites have full kitchens and room for a couch and TV. It is also conveniently home to the Foggy Bottom Campus’ blue carts.

 

Its proximity to Whole Foods and the Lerner Health and Wellness Center are positives, but the building is far enough from 23rd Street that traffic whizzing by isn’t as loud as it is in JBKO and Fulbright halls. The entrance opens to the GroW Garden and the hall is a short walk from the Watergate complex and Kennedy Center.

 

But next semester, noise may be more of concern to Amsterdam residents. GW’s housing website warns: Beginning in the summer of 2015, GW Hillel's Gewirz Center will undergo renovations. Students living in Amsterdam may hear construction noise Monday through Saturday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
