  • Our Community

    We are a diverse community from tech entrepreneurs to established professionals — brought together to participate in a nourishing community.

    OSLO has been a great fit for me. I loved that I was able to just show up with my clothes and settle right into a new group of friends. The space has been beautifully decorated and outfitted which makes coming home to it that much better. I travel a lot for work so making time to see folks is always a challenge. At OSLO, I have an awesome built-in group of people to come home to. The private spaces also mean I have a way to take time to myself when I want to. It's a great combination of social when I want to be and introverted when I want to be. If you are looking for a place that lets you build friendship and community while also providing space for independence - OSLO is it!

    Deciding to move into a co-living space was a difficult decision that I worried about once I took the plunge. Looking back a year I wish I had made the move earlier. The quality of the facilities plus the awesome people I have as roommates are what make the situation a huge positive in my life. There are many reasons to explore co-living. If you are moving to DC there is not better way to “learn” the city and begin to establish a social network than OSLO.

    Safety, empowerment, knowledge sharing, friendship, laughter, and meaning defines the OSLO experience. The community is an exhibit, a space designed to advance well-being, curiosity and comfort. Co-living generates a new tribe–kindred the participants become. If you’re new to the nation’s Capital, living part-time between geographies, a remote/hybrid worker or seek interactions with a diversity of life forces, then OSLO provides such access and opportunity to what is the 22nd century lifestyle. I am grateful for the immersive art on the walls, engagement with management, and the refreshment I experience each time that I enter or exit the OSLO edifice.
