Howard University's inventory prior to the current academic year was 5,095 beds between our Bethune Annex, College Hall North, College Hall South, Cook Hall, Drew Hall, The Harriet Tubman Quadrangle, Howard Plaza Towers - East, and Howard Plaza Towers - West.
To prepare for increased enrollment for the 2021-2022 academic year, Howard University secured additional student bed space through leasing agreements with off-campus properties. These leasing arrangements were with Mazza Grandmarc in College Park, Maryland and Washington Intern Student Housing (WISH) in Washington, D.C.'s Woodley Park.
As of October 2021, there are still hundreds of student housing beds available.
In the April 2020 Central Campus Master Plan, calls for additional residential housing options for students.
