Shared Units (Mount Vernon)

This option is perfect for conferences that want to house their participants together in a tradition residence hall setting. The Mount Vernon Campus shared units are all 2-person occupancy while Foggy Bottom hosts most short stay guests in 4-6 person units.

  • Mount Vernon Campus, most are 2-person units
  • Foggy Bottom Campus, most are 4-6 person units 
  • In-suite or adjoined bath across all units

Single Bedrooms (Mount Vernon Only)  

Single occupancy bedrooms are available only on our Mount Vernon Campus. This housing option is great for groups wanting to offer a greater level of privacy to their participants while at the same time encouraging communal activity.  

  • One unit with 4 individual bedrooms
  • Shared living room and In-suite bathroom

Private Units (Staff & Chaperones Only)

Private units are commonly requested by groups for their accompanying staff or adult chaperones.  These units can be reserved to be placed strategically around our shared Units.  In most locations a private unit also contains their own private in-suite bathroom, but in some locations a private unit shares an adjoined bathroom with another unit from the same group and participant of the same gender.
