Living In D.C.

Beginning in August 2016, our D.C. interns reside in the Washington Intern Housing Network facility. It is a high-end living environment with a workout facility, dedicated WiFi for each apartment, a swimming pool, theater, and is designed for academic programs, with classroom and computer facilities. The complex is located in the Capitol Hill/H Street area, near the bustling H Street Coordinator, one block from Union Station, and about an eight-minute walk to the US Supreme Court. The building has central air conditioning, laundry facilities in each apartment, classrooms, computer labs, and is secured by special entry locks and security guards.

The 2016-17 housing costs for the semester-long program, which do not include any meals, are $4,500/student. Because of the Washington Center's academic amenities, security, and close proximity to the metro, it is highly recommended that students reside there.

Planning your trip to Washington DC? Here's some information that might be helpful: 

Students in the program are discouraged from bringing cars to Washington, D.C. due to the extreme shortage of parking spaces, the high costs of both long- and short-term parking, and long commute times. The metro (subway system) provides convenient access to all major residential, governmental, and commercial areas in and around D.C.
