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.
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.
