About The Washington Intern Housing Network

Finding clean, safe, and comfortable accommodations for short-term housing is one of the greatest challenges facing those interning in the DC area.

page2-img1Recognizing this difficulty, a group of concerned former interns, lease-holders and property owners devised a plan to streamline a better, more efficient intern housing program. In 2006, the group began providing the best short-term housing on Capitol Hill. What started as an attempt to help Congressional interns find accommodations in the DC area, blossomed as students and post-grads were matched with more property owners and lease-holders. The desire for our quality housing, ease of accessibility, and outstanding customer service catapulted the demands for our services. And thus, the Washington Intern Housing Network (the WIHN) was born.

In January of 2009, the group collaboratively decided to officially become a boutique intern housing placement/management agency. Our housing selection has varied over the years and slightly changes to provide the most updated, well maintained housing options available to incoming interns. We have evolved into a network of over 16 properties concentrated in the Eastern Market area of Capitol Hill. Our properties offer a variety of housing options to suit one’s needs and taste. Providing outstanding customer service alongside our upscale properties sets the WIHN aside from all other intern agencies. We have hosted students and post-grads from East coast to West coast and dozens of countries around the world. Our agency is incredibly proud to contribute to the Capitol Hill/NoMa/Eastern Market/Mt. Vernon communities with our intern housing program. We are excited to welcome new D.C. interns every academic semester.

Long lasting friendships have formed with a great many of our former tenants, and we look forward to adding you to that list. When it comes to finding the best in quality, short-term housing solutions for your student or interns, Go for The WIHN!

I must emphsize how responsive and helpful the WIHN has been during my time in DC. If there is ever a problem or I just have a question, I simply send a text to one number and it reaches every employee. Each time I have sent a text about anything, I have gotten a response immediately!

Donald C. / Purdue University

The WIHN is in a great location in DC; within walking distance to grocery stores, Union Station, and the Mall. The units are as beautiful as the pictures, the roof and gym are fantastic. Compared to competitors, the WIHN is truly luxurious for the price you pay.

Addie M. / U. of Oregon

Once my son secured an international internship, our primary concern was obtaining clean, secure & convenient housing. We looked at the WIHN website & spoke to the staff. We were immediately impressed by their helpfulness & friendliness. We received guidance on housing & life in D.C., in general.
