How to spend your first day at Common Euclid


Welcome to Common Euclid, our brand new coliving home in the heart of Columbia Heights, Washington D.C. With fully-furnished suites, all-inclusive rent, and a built-in community, Common Euclid is not your standard rental. From day one, you’ll enjoy the difference of living at a Common home. 

Welcome home

How long did it take you to fully settle into your last apartment? For most people, it can feel like the unpacking and organizing never ends. Whether you’re waiting for your couch to finally arrive or just getting around to framing art, many renters don’t feel “at home” for at least a few weeks, if not months. Unless of course, you live at Common Euclid.

On your first day, you’ll arrive at a fully-furnished home. Head to your private bedroom and start to unpack. Since your rent includes a bed frame, mattress, side table, lamp, and clothes storage, you won’t need to spend the entire day putting together furniture or dragging a mattress up the stairs. We recommend you bring your own bedding and any personal objects that make your space feel like home.

Once you’re done, check out the rest of your suite! You’ll find a fully-furnished living area and a kitchen that’s stocked with pots, pans, dish ware, utensils, and all your household essentials. As a member at Common Euclid, you’ll also have access to the home’s furnished patio.

Explore beautiful Columbia Heights

Once you’ve finished unpacking and taking a look around, it’s time to explore your new neighborhood. Common Euclid is nestled in the heart of Columbia Heights, only a short walk from Howard University and tons of restaurants, bars, and shops alongside everyday conveniences.

If you’re a strict meal prepper or prefer to christen your new kitchen with a home cooked meal, head to the Whole Foods on Florida Ave only a five minute walk away. For those of us whose cooking skills end at boiling water, there are plenty of restaurants in the area to try. NuVegan Cafe serves up vegan versions of your favorite meals, including fried chicken and crab cakes. If you’re moving in over the weekend, you can also enjoy a delicious Italian brunch at Capa Tosta. 

For a bite to eat and a little extra, head to Sankofa Video Books & Café. This part-bookstore, part-coffee shop is dedicated to educating the community about Pan-African culture through books, movies, and events. Explore their wide range of titles and grab a cupcake while you’re at it.

Meet your new roommates

When you arrive home, take a minute to meet your new roommates. You can either catch them in the shared living room or kitchen, or create a post on the Connect by Common app to introduce yourself to other members around the city. If you have the chance, browse through the available events curated exclusively for Common members — think wine tastings, kickboxing classes, and museum trips. The events are a great way to try new things and meet new friends, especially if you’re new to Washington D.C.


While this might have been the least stressful move of your life, you still deserve a drink for completing the day successfully. Luckily at Common Euclid, you live just around the corner from cocktail bars, breweries, and other nightlife. Grab some friends (new or old!) and head to Midlands Beer Garden to catch a game and try one of their many beers on tap. If you prefer grapes over grain, St. Vincent Wine has you covered. Enjoy a glass and a charcuterie board on their back patio, or sip on a crafted cocktail at their cozy bar. Don’t forget to cheers to your new home!
