On-Campus Housing

PDI has special negotiated rates for our participants at American University's Centennial Hall. On-campus housing at American University is available on a limited basis. Participants are responsible for securing their own accommodations. Sign up early to take advantage of the on-campus housing option. On-campus Housing is available from May 8 to 28, 2011.

Single and double accommodations in the residence halls are available. The residence halls feature 24-hour complex desk operations, air conditioning, wireless internet access, laundry, kitchen, lounge facilities, parking, twin size beds, all linens, and semi-private bathrooms.
