Welcome to the Housing Portal of International Student House-DC

This portal gives new and returning applicants access to International Student House, Washington, DC's (ISH-DC) housing application. If you are a current resident, you may also use the portal to submit a request to extend or shorten your reservation. See below for a message about summer availability and instruction on how to access the application. 

As of September 14, 2017, we limited availability for women but not availability for men. We will update this section of our website as often as possible. Please see below for more information about joining our waiting list.

While we may not be able to confirm housing for you today, we continue to receive and process cancellations and other housing requests. Our ability to offer a space to a wait-listed applicant depends on how many cancellations we receive and the timing of your housing needs.

To be placed on our waiting list: Submit a Resident Application along with the nonrefundable $50 application fee. Managing a waiting list creates additional work on our staff, if you decide to enter the waiting list but are not offered a reservation, the application fee will remain nonrefundable.
