The College provides a set of apartments
for students participating in the program. The cost of housing for
participants in Washington is the same as the cost of campus housing
at the College for a term. The College collects no fee for board,
since students are expected to provide their own meals (each apartment
has a kitchen). The apartments are secure, and the group has access
to a resident advisor. However,
participants are expected to be able to independently manage shopping,
transportation and other exigencies of life in a city.
