Fully furnished housing, near public transportation, is guaranteed for all students accepted into the program. HPW strongly encourages students to take advantage of this affordable housing provided by TWC as it allows for a fuller immersion in the program and, consequently, a richer experience. You may, however, opt to arrange your own housing while participating in the program.
If you opt for the housing provided through TWC, you will share an apartment with other TWC interns in either the Washington Center’s Residential and Academic Facility at NoMa near Capitol Hill or their Residential Facility at Solaire in nearby Silver Spring, Maryland. Both locations are near a station on Washington, DC’s Metro subway system.
You’ll be living independently, but you won’t be left totally on your own. With its staff of Student Services professionals and Alumni in Residence staff assigned to each building, support is available 24 hours a day in case of an emergency.

- Convenient access to shops, restaurants and stores
- Fully equipped kitchens
- Fully furnished living areas
- Laundry facilities
- High-speed wireless Internet, cable and local phone access
- 24-hour front desk coverage and/or secured-access buildings
