Accommodations and Services


Our residence halls are among the best equipped in the metropolitan area. All rooms are carpeted and air-conditioned with in-room temperature controls. All floors also include laundry facilities, kitchenettes, lounge spaces, and semi-private men's and women's bathroom and shower facilities. Additionally, our entire campus, including the residence halls, has wireless internet connectivity for your convenience.

American University is situated in an ideal location in the nation's capital. Located in one of northwest Washington, DC's most beautiful residential areas, AU is just minutes by bus, cab, Metro (subway), or car from the city's most famous sites. The American University free shuttle service connects the university to Washington's Metro line at the Tenleytown/AU station, which is located just a block away from the Tenley Campus and three-quarters of a mile from the main campus.

Most interns will stay in double or triple occupancy rooms on the Tenley Campus during their stay. However, there are single-occupancy rooms available in apartment suites in Nebraska Hall, which is located on main campus. Single requests will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date the application is received at the Housing and Dining Programs office). Single requests that we cannot honor are automatically defaulted to your second choice of accommodations.  Please find 3d renderings of our room layouts below:

We make every effort to accommodate all roommate requests, but cannot guarantee requested assignments. Roommate pairs are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as early as possible and at the same time to ensure pairing.
