Living in the Capital City

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.
