My stay with The Washington Intern Housing Network has been nothing short of amazing! They were so gracious enough to bless me with a relief home when I moved from NC to DC to work on the COVID-19 Response. The staff ensured that my move in was seamless and was helpful with any questions or concerns I had. The house I stayed in was very clean and came equipped with any and everything you would need for an extended stay. Located in an amazing neighborhood and convenient to many different stores and public transportation. I couldn't ask for anything more. I would highly recommend staying with them and would definitely book in the future!
Spacious, even with a large number of students living in the same unit. Close to the Capitol and Union Station. Quality views outside on the balconies.
The living quarters themselves were good quality. The living room was large, the kitchen had all the necessary amenities needed, heating and air conditioning worked perfectly, and the wooden floors made cleaning much easier. The underground parking for bikes and accessible rooftops were also a plus. Internet was hit-or-miss, with some days the connection working flawlessly, other days randomly dropping in and out.
The best aspect was the responsive maintenance services. Any issue, whether it was a burned-out lightbulb or the refrigerator suddenly not working, the response was quick and the fix done right. Occasional cleanups by workers were done while most students were away, and genuinely helped keep the unit clean, especially considering how much of a mess so many people in one unit can make.
Made DC a solid experience.
Our son utilized this wonderful rental during his internship with the Senate. When we visited we were impressed by the quality of the apartment, the nice furnishings, the excellent suite mates, and the overall security of the building. The building is in a convenient location that is a short walk to the Capital and the rest of the buildings on the mall. This was a good experience for our son and I would highly recommend Washington Intern Housing.
My brother recently stayed with WIHN for his spring internship at the United States Senate and he absolutely loved the experience. The rooms had plenty of space and were very well maintained. The apartment building was centrally located and allowed him to quickly and easily get to work. It was also in a great location for finding top notch restaurants and other activities.
I have stayed with WIHN twice and had great experiences both times. The apartments are well designed and give more than enough space. I also met some of my best friends through this network! Would recommend for any intern needing semester housing for the Hill or otherwise.
We believe in the power of relationships.
Each year, The WIHN interviews our alumni and inquires about their DC experience and any advice they might have for those just starting out on their career path. Each year, almost unanimously, we here the same thing over and over again. One of the most critical aspects of serving as an intern is the opportunity you get to make new friendships and cultivate your network of fellow professionals. At The Washington Intern Housing Network, we realize the importance of making these connections and do what we can to facilitate these new relationships.
Each semester we sponsor and organize a “kick off” reception that allow for our tenants to meet & get to know one another. In 2015, The WIHN is eagerly looking forward to organizing group outings to museums, athletic events, lectures, concerts and live theater performances.
