Summer Residential Program


If a traditional fall or spring semester experience will not fit into your undergraduate plan of study, our Summer Residential Program is a great alternative!  The Summer Residential Program allows you to live in our fully furnished apartments in Arlington, VA while you take on an internship in our Nation's Capital during your summer break.


The Summer 2023 Program is open from Saturday, May 6th, 2023 to Sunday, August 13th, 2023. Residents have the choice of staying with us a minimum of 10 weeks or a maximum of 14 weeks during that timeframe. Weeks are only calculated from weekend to weekend. If you would prefer to move in during the week, you will be charged as if you were moving in the weekend prior. 10 weeks is the minimum length of stay; if you wish to stay less than 10 weeks you will still be billed for 10 weeks. 

Space in the Summer Residential Program is limited, and applicants are accepted in the order in which their application and deposit is received. Please see below for eligibility information. Internship assistance is available as needed to students from our member institutions.

Your application is not considered to be complete until we have also received your $300 Application and Damage Deposit. You may pay your Application and Damage Deposit by check or PayPal (email to set up PayPal payment). Your Application and Damage Deposit is held throughout your stay and completely refundable, pending full payments to your financial account and the condition of your apartment upon move out. 

Deadlines and Eligibility

Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until space is filled. 

The Summer Residential Program is available to individuals over the age of 18 who are undergraduate students, recent graduates, and/or graduate students who are in good standing with their school.


The Summer Residential Program fees cover all amenities including WiFi, water, electric, cable, furnishings, an in-unit washer and dryer, and access to the gym and pool. All you need to pack is your bedding, towels, and clothes! All of our apartments are 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom units.


The Summer Residential Program costs $250/week/person for a double room (you would share a bedroom and bathroom with 1 roommate, in an apartment with 1-2 other people) or $400/week/person for a single room (you would have your own bedroom and bathroom in an apartment with 1 or 2 other people). 

Alums of our fall or spring programs get 10% off the cost of their stay in the Summer Residential Program!

Full payment, or arrangements to make payment, must be made prior to moving in.

For current students pursuing internships for credit, please be advised that financial aid may be limited, or unavailable during the summer.  Students should check with their schools as early as possible to see if any financial aid is available.
