Summer Intern Housing 2021

March 15, 2021

We plan to have intern housing starting May 16, Sunday and ending Sunday August 8. We will be offering only single occupancy housing due to COVID-19.  Online registration is now open.

COVID testing/vaccine requirements: 
Please note that you will be asked to submit proof of a negative COVID-19 test done within 3-5 days prior to your arrival date. An email reminder will be sent to you during the first week of May and will include further instructions on how to submit the proof.

You will be required to submit another proof of a negative COVID-19 test done within 3-5 days after check-in. 

Pleaes limit activity to the primary purpose of your visit (e.g. performing an internship or attending a conference) until your second COVID test.

Rules regarding vaccinated people and their testing requirements have not yet been made official by the city. If they are, we will post updated information and email everyone who has registered.

As of now, we are still moving forward with our intern housing program and do not expect that to change. But we also cannot predict the course of the pandemic or how the District of Columbia will respond to it.

If the University cancels your housing because we are prevented from offering it due to COVID, you will receive a full, 100% refund.
If you must cancel your reservation due to COVID circumstances, the normal cancellation policy will not apply and instead you will be given a full, 100% refund.  Cancellations for other reasons will still be held to our normal cancellation policy. Please submit your cancelation request via email:
