This is my second summer using the WIHN to find convenient, safe, and spacious intern housing. I've had friendly roommates both times, which made for fun summers in D.C. The apartments are beautiful and are fully furnished. The location is great, as I was able to walk to my internship on Capitol Hill in under 15 minutes. Union Station is also a short walk away, as well as Giant supermarket.
The apartment was spacious and comfortable, the kitchen has all the furnishings for home cooking and the living room is nice and modern. The WHIN network was easy to apply to and they posted events for all members to meet and hang out. The housing is in an ideal location next to the Capitol with plenty of nearby shops and stores.
The apartment was great! It was clean, spacious, and recently renovated. I had some very nice roommates from all over. Once the new management took over they were very helpful and were eager to help with any concerns I had.
My daughter recently stayed in a WIHN property on I Street NW. The apartment was clean and fully furnished and the roommates were friendly. More importantly the building was safe and secure which was important to us given its proximity to Union Station. The new management was very helpful when we had to extend her stay by a few weeks at the last minute. Real peace of mind for parents.
My experience with WIHN went extremely well. My location was conveniently located near a metro station, as well as a grocery store, restaurants, etc. The amenities in the building were renovated and always clean. The WIHN staff is very helpful and responsive! I definitely recommend WIHN for anyone looking for a convenient and seasoned housing solution.
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.
