Apartments and Housemates

Posted January 7, 2022

My name is Kristin Hurd, and my husband Nathaniel and I are seeking a live-in tenant who can help with our home and children 10-12 hours a week, preferably including some daytime hours during the week, in exchange for room and board.

We live in Hyattsville, Maryland, within walking distance to St. Jerome's Catholic Church and a close commute for CUA and the University of Maryland.
We have three children, ages 5, 2.5 and a one-month-old. Ideally, we are looking for a Catholic woman who can provide childcare for the 5 and/or 2.5 year old and help prepare meals on an agreed upon schedule based on both of our needs.

The bedroom is a bright, newly renovated space in our basement with a semi-private bathroom (we do use it occasionally during the day). The rest of living space (laundry, kitchen, etc.) is shared.

We would like someone to commit to staying at least 3 months. We can furnish the room or tenant may bring her own items. All utilities and internet are included. Should availability change, we can negotiate a rate to pay some rent in order to lessen hours.

If you are interested, please contact me at for more information.

We have a room available in our basement apartment, coming open in November. There is also living room, dining nook, small kitchen and bathroom which is shared.  All utilities are included (electric, water,  shared laundry and wifi) and we are happy to have others in our family outdoor space, especially if you don't mind nerf guns. The apartment shares an exterior door but is enclosed from the rest of the house.

We are a short walk to the metro station and there are busses that come by regularly. Shops and restaurants are in easy reach. We are within a 15 minute bike ride to the Institute. Our home is one block from a river with miles and miles of cycling and running trails and forested parkland. The neighborhood is quiet and a part of the very vibrant Hyattsville Catholic community.

We are a family of Canadian imports with 7 kids, 6 of whom are still at home. My husband is a CUA Theology professor. We are a pretty jolly and welcoming bunch, respectful of privacy and keep very reasonable hours. Our eldest son, who is registered at CUA, is the occupant of the other bedroom in the apartment.

All of this joy can be yours for $700 per month. We look forward to welcoming you to our home.

My name is Lindsay Myers and I am seeking a live-in tenant who can help me with my home and children 10-12 hours a week in exchange for room and board. I live in Hyattsville, Maryland and have four children ages 5, 3, 1, and a newborn due in September. Ideally, I would love to host a capable, practicing Catholic adult woman who can help me out with basic household tasks (folding laundry, preparing meals, very light tidying) and childcare during a set schedule that can be determined by the needs/availability of the both of us. I'm looking for someone for at least the fall semester, but am open to the entire academic year. I can offer a large private room with a large closet, a shared bathroom, and a semi-private office space (occasionally used by my husband who is a law student).

I live in the Hyattsville Catholic Community affiliated with St. Jerome's parish and can offer lots of practical experience for one of your students in living out the vocation of marriage and family life!!

I can be contacted at

1 Bedroom for rent in a Hyattsville house. $500/month plus utilities.
Available to female student or young professional.

The room is available starting in August and will be a month-to-month lease

We rent out 2 upstairs bedrooms in a house shared with my mother, a retired widow with a cat and dog.  She resides in the downstairs rooms. One upstairs room is already rented to a young professional Catholic woman with whom you would share the upstairs bathroom and sitting room. The downstairs kitchen is shared by all three residents. Washer and dryer can be accessed in the basement. Street parking is available (you will need to obtain a permit from City Hall), and the nearest metro stop (PG Plaza on the Green Line) is 0.9 miles away. The house is slightly more than four miles from McGivney Hall.

Greetings everyone, new poster here. I'm looking for a male roommate to rent a basement apartment with me.

The place is just a block from miles of biking and running trails, river and forested park (really nice when you are in the city). The metro and buses are in very easy reach and the neighborhood is walkable with shops, restaurants and even a mead brewery. There are many local parishes close by, and the location is within the Hyattsville Catholic community, which is always very active. Your half would be $790 a month which includes utilities, laundry and internet. The landlords are a CUA professor and his family.

I myself am a CUA student who also works as an axe-throwing coach. I am fairly tidy, easy-going, and have a wide range of interests, and I am always up for a chat and meeting new people.

If you have any questions, simply email me at

Partly above ground basement suite available immediately in our house near Ft. Totten - $910 plus utilities (~$80-120).
You'd have a spacious living area (~12x16), large walk-in closet (7x8), en suite bathroom, and share the kitchen and living/dining spaces on the main floor. Because of the size, it's easy to set up a small office space if you're working/studying from home.

We have additional storage in the unfinished basement, street parking, washer/dryer, large enclosed yard/garden, and back patio good for cookouts.
Your housemates would be two women and one man in their 30s. We tend to be fairly quiet, but have always welcomed family, friends, and guests during normal, non-COVIDtide.

We’re located in a quiet neighborhood along the Fort Circle parks, near the ADW Pastoral Center. CUA, JP II Institute, DHS, and Childrens National/MedStar are all a short drive or bus ride away. Ft. Totten metro is a 15 minute walk and the F6, E2/4 and 80 bus lines stop within blocks. Large quiet field across the street is perfect for frisbee, working out, star and deer gazing, and there are multiple parks and trails nearby.
