Living in D.C.

Meet your home away from home.

TWC is a diverse community of interns, a learning environment and a place to call home.

Over 400 schools across the United States and the world partner with us because we serve as an extension of their campus. TWC’s Residential and Academic Facility (RAF) is home to many of our students coming to D.C. to participate in our programs, including the Funded Federal Diversity Internships.

If your internship is at a location outside of D.C., we also make those housing arrangements for you. Depending on the agency, housing may be full covered or provided at a reduced rate.

Why should I live in TWC's housing?

You’re not just moving into a building; you’re joining a community of bold, ambitious students from across the country (and around the world)! Our apartments are designed to give you the space and independence you need while also connecting you with the people who will make your time here truly special.

Our student services staff works hard to foster this global community by regularly organizing events to connect students with their peers, including networking opportunities, walking tours of D.C. neighborhoods, monument and museum visits and so much more.

Peace of mind when you need it most.

We provide you with the 24-hour support and service you've come to expect at school—but in a big-city, metropolitan setting.

We are committed to ensuring the health and safety of our community in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. We've added safety precautions such as mandatory testing, temperature checks and single-occupancy living for all students who join us in D.C.

Take a tour of your home in D.C.

Beyond the National Mall, D.C. is a city of diverse and exciting neighborhoods.

You’ll be living in NoMa (North of Massachusetts Avenue), a cosmopolitan neighborhood full of unique restaurants and nightlife. 

You'll be living blocks from the renowned H Street Corridor, a staple destination for D.C. foodies. D.C. was awarded Bon Appetit's title of Restaurant City of the Year in 2016, and it’s easy to see why if you take a walk down H Street. You’ll find everything from authentic Ethiopian food to ramen to inventive vegetarian cuisine and more.
