  • I will be arriving after 5:00pm on check-in day. Can I still check-in at my apartment building?

    If you are arriving after 5:00pm on your designated check-in date you can still check-in, but you must complete the "Travel Plans" section within the Community Profile. Please note that we do not accept arrivals between the hours of 12:00am - 7:00am.

  • Can I check-in at my building before the official check-in date?

    Early check-in is not an option. TWC hosts short-term Seminars between each semester throughout the year. Due to this revolving schedule, early arrival requests cannot be accommodated as there is little time to clean the apartments and have them ready for your arrival.

    TWC partners with the Courtyard Marriott to give you and your family great rates to enjoy Washington D.C. prior to check-in. This is an excellent option if you’re planning on coming to Washington D.C. earlier then the check-in date and time. The Courtyard Marriott is located 3 ½ blocks from The Residential and Academic Facility at NoMa.

  • Do you provide co-ed apartments or family housing options?

    We can provide co-ed apartments upon request, through a "Roommate Request" in the Community Profile. Please note that roommate requests must be mutual to be honored. While we try to accommodate preferences, not all requests can be honored. We are currently unable to provide family housing options.

  • I am interested in bringing my vehicle and need a parking space.

    The Residential and Academic Facility at NoMa has limited parking spaces available. A parking space will cost $550 for the Spring/Fall semesters, $375 for the Summer Term, $45 for a one week Seminar, and $90 for a two week Seminar. Your vehicle will be assigned a private numbered space in our secure parking garage. The parking garage is underneath the building and is in close proximity to the elevator which will take you right to your apartment. Parking assignments are made on a first-come, first-serve basis, depending on space and occupancy availability. The parking fee is due in full by the day of check-in.

    If you are selected to live at another residential facility, you will have to visit the building management office to purchase parking, depending on availability.
     

  • I am interested in a private bedroom.

    We have limited 2 bed/1 bath apartments. You will share the bathroom, kitchen, and common area with one other student. Please keep in mind that one of the bedrooms in each 2 bed/1bath apartment has no windows. The cost for a private bedroom is an additional $1500 for the Spring/Fall semesters, $1000 for the Summer Term, and $200 for Seminars (in addition to the housing fee).

    Please note that completing the Community Profile does not guarantee you will have a private bedroom. You will receive confirmation of your request from the Office of Student Services and Community Life.

  • If I have a disability, how do I receive accommodations?

    All persons with disabilities (physical or cognitive disability) should note accommodations and documentation within the Community Profile. If you have further questions, please contact our Disability Services team at disabilityservices@twc.edu or 202-469-8089.

  • How do I find out information about my roommate?

    Roommate information will be released approximately two weeks before your designated day of check-in.
     

  • Can I request a specific roommate?

    Yes. The Community Profile offers a "Roommate Search" section. Roommate requests must be mutual to be honored. Please submit your Community Profile by the priority deadline, to ensure we can fulfill your request.

  • In which residential building will I live?

    All students should expect to be placed at the Residential and Academic Facility (RAF) at NoMa. Should the RAF be filled to capacity, we guarantee placement in equivalent apartments in a similar location, provided that you complete your Community Profile along with your housing security deposit by the final deadline. We do not consider requests for specific building assignments outside of the RAF.

  • What does my housing fee cover?

    Your housing fee provides fully furnished apartments – including housewares (pots, pans, coffee maker, eating utensils, plates, drinking glasses, etc.) – a washer/dryer in each unit, iron and ironing board and other amenities such as a fitness center, computer lab and 24/7 concierge service. All utilities are covered including cable and internet.
