Baltimore/D.C. Men’s Housing

 

The Baltimore / D.C. program offers housing in both the D.C. area as well as Baltimore. We understand that you’re on a student budget, so the housing is highly subsidized and almost certainly more affordable than any sublet you’ll find on your own. All D.C. housing is in close proximity to public transportation – a must in D.C.! Please view our Housing Infographic for a comparison of local DC housing options.
A key part of the jInternship experience is the camaraderie you experience with your fellow jInternship interns. Living as a group creates the opportunity for special bonds to form, and paves the way logistically for you to join together in the many after-work and weekend activities that will make your summer much more than just an internship.
Living with the group is a mandatory component of the program.
