Intern Housing

Be Near D.C. Without Paying D.C. Prices

The D.C. area is hopping when it comes to summer internships, and if you're from out of town, finding a short-term place to stay can be tricky. Mason's residence halls can solve your problem and ease your mind.

Whether you're a student looking for a place to sleep or a business that needs to house a group of summer staff, we can provide quality accommodations in state-of-the-art facilities that are affordable, safe, and comfortable.

Our campus community also provides a shuttle service to the Vienna/Fairfax Metro Station, providing access to workplaces in Washington D.C., Northern Virginia, and Southern Maryland.

Living Accommodations

Interns will stay in the apartment-style residence hall, Liberty Square, which houses 2 or 4 interns per apartment. All interns will be in private single occupancy bedrooms, while sharing a bathroom, kitchen, and living room. You can make suitemate requests on your application, although we can't guarantee those requests will be met (but we'll give it our best effort).

What you'll get:

  • Furnished bedroom (bed/mattress, dresser, desk, and closet)
  • Air-conditioned living spaces
  • Full kitchen with all major appliances
  • Bath with shower (one bathroom for every two interns in the apartment)
  • Furnished living room (sofa, end table, coffee table, and entertainment stand)
  • 24-hour customer service desk
  • Free shuttle to and from the Vienna/Fairfax Metro Station
  • Campus cable service (residents must provide a television and cable cord)
  • Wireless Internet (wired connectivity available; residents provide Ethernet cord)
  • Access to laundry facilities within the residence hall

Affordable Pricing

Intern housing is $294 per week, per person for a single occupancy bedroom within a shared apartment ($42 per night). You'll need to pay a non-refundable deposit of $275, which will be applied towards the total cost, to reserve a space. We have 2 bedroom and 4 bedroom apartments available. 

Intern housing is available from Sunday, May 27th, at 12 noon through Saturday, August 11th, at 12 noon. A four week minimum stay is required. These dates and times are non-negotiable.
