I had a great experience with WIHN at Senate Square in Summer 2018. Definitely on the pricier side, but it was convenient given that I secured an internship last minute and needed a safe place to live for the summer. I loved my roommates and Melanie was always friendly and willing to help with any issues I had. If you've never lived in D.C. before and need short-term housing for an internship I recommend WIHN.
My experience with WIHN has been fantastic! The staff are very friendly and looking to help make our stay the best it can be. The location is perfect for a hill internship and the housing itself is beautiful. I would highly recommend WIHN to any interns looking for housing in the future.
The apartment was vey clean and modern. However, the housing coordinator tried to force me out of my room on my second day after moving in then yelled at me for not being willing to move all my stuff. We also only received our monthly cleaning service one time all semester. Overall, the facility is great, but the management is terrible.
The apartment was really nice with a great location. AC broke a few times but maintenance was quick! Management was always available to help. My roommates were nice and we had fun together. Only reason I am giving it 4 stars was because it was SUPER pricey for the bedroom I had to share.
The WIHN made my move to DC incredible. Accommodations were great, everything was super close. I loved all of my interactions with this company and they helped me every step of the way. I tell all of my friends about this when they are moving to DC because it really was such a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
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.
