Life in D.C.
Students live independently in apartments (2 bedroom, 2 bath) in the Penn Quarter neighborhood (close to shopping, dining, public transportation, etc.)
Washington Program students live in furnished apartments. Each apartment has two bedrooms, a kitchen, and two bathrooms. Four students occupy each apartment, and roommate requests are accepted. There is in-unit laundry.
Students are expected to prepare their own meals. No meal plan is available, however, students receive a stipend to cover the cost of groceries and meals.
Students live in a secure building that is staffed by residential assistants and a 24-hour security guard.
Cultural & Recreational Opportunities
Well known for its monuments and architectural marvels, Washington is home to an almost endless array of opportunities for cultural enrichment and appreciation of the arts.
The Washington Post’ s Going Out Guide is a good starting point for students looking to explore DC’s many offerings. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts offers world-class entertainment, including many free performances. Other opportunities include the Smithsonian Museums and the Corcoran Gallery of Art, to name just a few.
