Like the idea of moving to your new apartment with just your laptop and clothes? Welcome to Varsity on K, which offers furnished apartments with all-inclusive rents in a former George Washington University dorm at 950 24th St. NW in Washington.

Scheduled to open Jan. 3, the building has 197 studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom units and is designed to appeal to millennials. The units range from 535 square feet to 1,489 square feet for one three-bedroom unit, but most of the available studio and one-bedroom units have less than 1,000 square feet of living space.

The rent ranges from $2,500 for a studio to $5,800 for a three-bedroom unit. There is also one three-bedroom and den unit overlooking Washington Circle that rents for $10,000 per month.

Each apartment is fully furnished and has an open floor plan, an in-unit washer and dryer, stainless-steel appliances, quartz counters, and engineered hardwood flooring. The rent includes all utilities, wireless Internet access and cable television.

The pet-friendly building has bicycle racks, a furnished courtyard with a fire pit, electric car-charging stations, a kitchen for entertaining, a fitness center, a game lounge, private study rooms, concierge services and monthly resident events.

The developer, Varsity Investment Group, has previously developed upscale, close-to-campus housing options near the University of Maryland at College Park, Johns Hopkins University, the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley.

Like those developments, the Varsity on K is being marketed as an option for undergraduate and grad students, recent graduates and young professionals.
