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.
My daughter Emma has just returned from her summer in DC, staying in WIHN accommodations at Senate Square. Moving her into a nice, clean, furnished apartment was so comforting as we were leaving her in a new city for the summer. The WIHN staff was so friendly and responsive throughout her stay, and she felt safe the whole summer. Swimming at the rooftop pool was one of her summer favorites and her walk to work on Capitol Hill was a breeze each day. She was so happy with her decision to stay here, and as parents so were we.
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.
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.
