CRS - Intern Housing Accommodations

Accommodations & Services

Our residence halls are among the best equipped in the metropolitan area. All rooms are 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 Red Line at the Tenleytown/AU station, which is located just three-quarters of a mile from our campus.

Most interns will stay in double occupancy rooms during their stay. There are a limited number of single rooms available. Due to limited availability of singles, interns staying 8 weeks or more are given priority when making assignments. We cannot guarantee singles. Single requests are handled on a first-come, first-served basis (based on the date the application is received at the University Conference and Guest Services 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.
