Fall and Spring Housing
CU in D.C. has a partnership with WISH (Washington Intern Student Housing), an organization that provides housing to student interns. During academic semesters, fall and spring, CU students typically live together in the WISH Woodley Park apartment building in the Woodley Park neighborhood. Visit the WISH Woodley Park website for more information. Woodley Park is a lovely northwest D.C. neighborhood that is located near Rock Creek Park, The National Zoo, the Washington National Cathedral, and the Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle neighborhoods. Woodley Park has its own Metro stop; is only one Metro stop from the CU and D.C. classroom/office in the Carnegie for International Peace building near Dupont Circle; and is only three stops from Metro Center, the hub of the city’s Metro system. This ideal location makes it easy and convenient to get anywhere in the city in a short period of time. The neighborhood is also ideal for students because it is adjacent to two of the liveliest and most interesting neighborhoods in D.C., Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. Adams Morgan has great night life, has restaurants that serve food from around the world, and is considered one of the most eclectic and dynamic neighborhoods in D.C. Dupont Circle is considered a more gentrified and historic neighborhood and has numerous trendy restaurants, bars, and shops.
