Intern Housing Overview

American University is situated in an ideal location in the nation's capital. Located in northwest Washington, one of 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 campus. 

The intern housing program is available for any non-AU student visiting the Washington, DC area for an academic internship, educational program, or scholarly research. All applicants must be 18 years of age or older by their expected check-in date.
