Intern Housing

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for Summer 2020!

Howard University Students 

If you are a continuing Howard University student interested in summer housing, please check back during spring 2020 for details regarding the application process.

Students graduating in May 2020 must apply through our Intern Housing Application.

Individual Interns (Non-Howard University Students)

During May through August, we offer affordable, suite-style, on-campus housing to eligible non-Howard University students who have secured internships or supervised research positions in the Washington, DC area and surrounding jurisdictions.

Interns may request to live in a private or shared bedroom in the newly renovated, Howard Plaza Towers – East or West. All bedrooms are furnished with an extra-long, twin sized bed and mattress, as well as a dresser and desk. All suites are equipped with an in-suite bathroom and kitchen. Interested applicants can check our amenities page for a detailed listing.


Our intern housing rates vary based on room type and guest’s length of stay. Click here to view rates and floor plan options available for summer 2020.


To be eligible for summer accommodations, all applicants requesting summer housing in the Howard Plaza Towers must be at least 18 years of age or older by the expected check-in date.

Proof of internship, educational program, scholarly research or enrollment in a local college or university must be submitted prior to move-in. Failure to provide appropriate documentation may result in loss of housing.

All applicants are also required to pass a background check prior to residing in any on-campus facilities. A $25.00 processing fee is required and added to housing costs.
