Short-term Housing Options
Unfortunately, the University does not offer short-term housing. However, there are many other possibilities for different forms of short-term housing.
Sublet Information is an apartment rental service that advertises apartments, sublets, subleases, roommates & houses for rent. See also the Washington Post and the Washington City Paper on-line search processes for current classified ads. Finally, Craig's List provides subletting listings.
Apartment Complexes generally offer 3, 6 or 9 month leases at slightly higher rents. On-line locator services allow searching for apartments that offer this option. NOTE HOWEVER that in practical terms many complexes often do not offer short-term leases since they prefer to lease by the year. (Furniture rental is also generally available.)
Biz-Stay is another on-line resource. The preferred accommodation choices in their directory are short-term furnished apartments or homes, and apartment-style hotel rooms with kitchens. (Accommodations of this type are commonly referred to as corporate housing, temporary housing, serviced apartments, extended stay hotels, apart-hotels or self-catering apartments.) Preference is also given to hotels that offer extended-stay discounts, typically for 7 days or longer. There are a wide-variety of listings for the Washington D.C. metro area.
DC Housing Network is an online resource to help people working in the public interest find a place to stay in any price range in the Washington area ...especially short-term housing. There are guest houses, rooms for rent in group houses, apartment rentals, shares and sublets, roommate matching and house swapping services, from bargain to luxurious.
