Each summer (mid-May through mid-August) thousands of guests from across the globe travel to Washington, D.C. to host and attend professional conferences, complete academic internships, or enroll in summer courses at American University. The Conference & Residential Services team works to provide comfortable accommodations, dining and meeting space at a reasonable price to meet your needs.
In Summer 2012, American University hosted more than 90 conferences and events and more than 650 summer interns on our campus.
Located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, we are located minutes from the National Cathedral, and within a few miles of some of DC’s most historic sites. Art, culture, shopping, entertainment, and diverse sporting events – it’s all here! The galleries, restaurants, stores and parks of DC are at your fingertips. Explore the National Mall, shop the many stores of Georgetown, or visit one of the many Smithsonian Museums in and around the DC metro area.
The dynamic and international District of Columbia can be your summer home. We invite you to live, learn, explore, and discover all that our city and American University have to offer!
