Welcome!

At the heart of the most successful cities and metropolitan regions in the world are great universities. This is especially true in Washington where the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area represents the combined resources of the Capital region’s best academic institutions. Comprised of thirteen universities, our member institutions are public, private, federal, historically black, religious, secular, devoted to the deaf and hard of hearing, and focused on women’s education. Their student body sizes range from a few hundred to over 35,000. Both the USA Today and the Wall Street Journal agree—Washington is a college town!!
