At the risk of maybe being too honest for the WIHN's liking, there are better places to rent for the price you pay here, but they're far out of town and none come furnished. You really can't find a better 3-month deal for your stay in DC (trust me, I've tried!)

Since 2013, we have housed more than 100 students at WIHN’s Greystone facility during all of our spring semester programs while they worked at internships in Washington. As the program coordinator for our Semester in Washington D.C. and the primary administrative contact on housing for our college’s program, I have researched various housing options over the past ten years. In my hours of research and comparing other sites in or around the city, I have not found a better “deal” in terms of cost, quality or accessibility. The fact that Greystone is located right in the district is an important factor for us, since it allows our students ready access to transportation, internship sites, site seeing opportunities, and the culture and life of Washington D.C.
Housing costs in Washington D.C. are extremely high, and with our focus on keeping the cost of participating in our semester-long D.C. internship program manageable for our students, I have not found a better option cost-wise for our students than WIHN’s Greystone housing.
Living with up to 20 students in this large house certainly constitutes communal living, and there are benefits and pressures that accompany such housing arrangements. The students regularly comment at the close of the semester that the close friendships formed with housemates, as well as the location of Greystone rank among the best parts of their semester experience, but living in close quarters with a large number of other individuals can lead to some minor tensions.
Greystone is a historic house, and with that come character and unique features, but also sometimes the need for repairs and service. As an older building, it obviously does not have all the modern conveniences and built-in conveniences that new construction may include. I have found that Melanie and Jacob at WIHN are quick to address concerns and problems at the house, providing repairs and service in a very timely manner. They work diligently to address issues that will improve the students’ experiences, and welcome feedback from the residents about problems and possible improvements. Additionally, they are open to things that can be provided to ensure that the environment is friendly, efficient and workable for the residents, for example, this past spring WIHN upgraded the internet accessibility and added additional cooking options for the kitchen to in response to student input.
Our students have found the neighborhood to be a safe place to live, with ready access to bus and rail transportation – as well as being within very manageable walking distance to numerous sites and work places.
I certainly recommend WIHN in terms of their administration, as well as Greystone as a very good option for student internship housing in Washington D.C.

Living at the WIHN has been, overall, a really great experience. WIHN management is very open and responsive. The location is incredible, the Senate Square apartments are extremely nice, and each apartments comes with all the furnishing and appliances you need to just move right in and feel at home. I would definitely recommend WIHN housing to anyone who is interning in DC, especially for a short period of time. The price is well worth it. Your are in an extremely central location (steps from the metro and grocery store) plus you don't have to worry about buying things for an apartment that you're only going to move out of in a few months. If you move to Senate Square, don't forget to check out the rooftop at night to see the incredible view of the Capitol and the Washington Monument!

My time at the WIHN was a fantastic experience! With its central location, great access to metro, grocery store, and night life while still being able to walk to work, I would highly recommend staying here. Senate Square apartments are beautiful, well managed, maintenance problems are taken care of quickly. The friendships I have made with my roommates will last well beyond my internship. I enjoyed cable, wifi, a washer/dryer, first-rate appliances, and an extremely comfy couch. It is definitely well worth the price!

Very accommodating and centrally located. The appliances and furniture were all brand new and high quality. Staff were prompt and helpful when asked for assistance. They made arrangements quick and simple when I was in a time crunch. It was a pleasure to use WIHN for my summer internship housing

Confirming what those who already lived here have known for years,  a recent Wall Street Journal article listed Washington, D.C. as the most expensive place to live in the United States. In addition, The Washington Post published a government study that declared Washington, D.C. housing prices higher than those of New York City or San Francisco.

The WIHN’s unique pricing structure and shared living model allow us to provide not just a clean & comfortable space to stay but a number of housing options to fit any budget.   We are certainly aware that, at first glance, our pricing may come as a shock to those who have not lived in short term, fully furnished housing in our market.  However, please consider the following is included in our published rates;

  • Fully furnished accommodations (full list of standard items)

Additionally, we’re pleased to offer amazingly convenient locations, newly constructed properties & lease terms less than 12 months for one incredible flat rate.

Shared living provides one of the most budget friendly housing options available in our nation’s capital.  You can be certain that The WIHN provides its residents with the most all-around bang for their housing dollar!
