Live in the Washington, D.C. Area

One of the most exciting aspects of coming to The Washington Center is where you will live. Whether or not you choose to use our housing, you will have ample opportunities to meet fellow interns, have fun and explore one of the world’s liveliest and most engaging cities.


Although most interns choose to live in our housing, you are not required to do so. You should be aware however that some scholarships are contingent on using TWC housing.


The Washington Center Housing


You won't live in dormitories. Instead, you'll share an apartment with other TWC interns, either in our Residential and Academic Facility at NoMa near Capitol Hill, or in one of a few other carefully selected buildings all near a station on Washington's Metro subway system.


Best of all, you'll live with fellow students and get to know people from not only the United States but also around the world. You'll participate in a variety of social activities, trips and adventures with your colleagues. And at the end of your program, you'll have created friendships that remain strong long after you complete your internship.


You'll live independently, but you won't be left totally on your own. With its staff of student services professionals and alumni in residence assigned to each building, The Washington Center ensures that support is available 24 hours a day in case of an emergency.
