International Student House

1825 R. Street

Washington, D.C. 20009

This residence hall contains dorm rooms that can accommodate between two and four students. Since ISH caters to people from across the globe, odds are you will have one or more roommates who are from a different country than yourself. Rental fees include breakfast and dinner from Sunday through Friday, and breakfast only on Saturday. One of the things that makes ISH unique is the fact that special events and tours are planned from time to time, allowing residents to spend time together and enjoy local attractions as a group.

International students on F-1 and J-1 statuses may enter the United States up to 30 days in advance of the date on their DS-2019 or I-20 form in order to get settled. Make plans accordingly so you’ll have plenty of time to look at these different housing options before classes start. For more information on housing for international students, contact us.
