As a parent of a young man interning in DC, I highly recommend WIHN! We had used another company and should have gone with WIHN in the first place. The WIHN apartments are beautiful and are in a safe and convenient location. The staff is very helpful and any concerns are addressed immediately! WIHN is highly organized and keeps you up to date on move-in and move-out procedures!
We want to give a special shout out to Melanie for all of her help! Thank you!
"WIHN is great, it keeps everything simple for an intern new to DC." The amenities are phenomenal and the staff were very helpful. Great location near the capitol, close to the metro, and an abundance of stores near by. Really useful for anyone not familiar with the DC area and worried about moving into a shady neighborhood. WIHN helps put your mind at ease by finding a safe and comfortable spot for you. The luxury apartments came fully furnished, including dishes and silverware, perfect for an intern that just moved to town and is still getting their legs under them. The building was better than I imagined; with a pool, two gyms, terrace, parking garage, and has a great staff. In the end I can't say enough good things about the Washington Intern Housing Network.
Dependable, high speed wireless internet is mission critical when it comes to your time in Washington, D.C.
In this day and age, The WIHN is acutely aware of how critical a reliable, high speed wireless internet connection is to today’s interns and young professionals.
We’ve partnered with Comcast/Xfinity cable & internet services to provide our tenants with the highest speed data bundles available for residential properties. Each unit & property comes with its own dedicated high speed cable internet connection and is only shared among 7 residents at any one time. This leaves plenty of bandwidth for Netflix streaming, YouTube, Xbox gaming as well as services such as AppleTV, Chromecast, Hulu+, Pandor or Spotify.
Between iPads, smart phones, laptops and an assortment of wireless devices, mobile is the name of the game for our students. The Washington Intern Housing Network consulted with network engineering firm, Merlin Technologies, to install the highest quality, most robust wireless internet access points on the consumer market. In test after test, the Apple AirPort Extreme performed the most consistently.
Additionally, The WIHN maintains its own tech support staff to maintain the uptime of our connections and equipment. In short, this means no waiting days on Comcast to respond to an outage or in the rare event of equipment malfunction.
Our tech support staff has taken the liberty of preparing and running an internet speed test from one of our luxury apartment units. The results of which have been published below. Please note that the following speed test was performed on an HP Omni 200 PC via Wifi using the Apple Airport Extreme router with a Motorola Surfboard 8560 cable modem.
