Live, Grow, Community

 

Our Intern Housing Program provides an enriching experience for young professional conservative interns at a reasonable cost. Conveniently located adjacent to The Heritage Foundation on the Senate side of Capitol Hill, our Intern Housing location is an easy walk to House and Senate office buildings. It is also nearby to Union Station for easy Metro access, making it an ideal location for interns on the Hill and throughout the Washington, D.C. area.

 

 
 

Internship Amplifier

 

Our Intern Housing Program is more than a place to live, it is a place to grow and build community. We strive to create an engaging community, to mentor our residents, and build a network of like-minded conservative leaders. Our hope is that each resident leaves encouraged and more equipped than when they arrived in Washington, D.C. Each of our residential floors is staffed by Resident Advisors (RAs) who have a passion for working with young adults eager to begin their career in Washington, D.C. The experience, wisdom, and mentorship by the RAs is unparalleled across other intern housing options in the city. Choosing to live and participate in our program is an internship amplifier. It offers you a network of peers on a similar journey with lasting opportunity for impact.

Living in the Johnson Building served as a perfect introduction to life in the city – I easily made friends with students of similar beliefs and backgrounds who I have stayed in touch with ever since. I am also thankful for the support of the RAs who were always available and welcoming. I will forever cherish my time spent in the Johnson Building and I truly believe that there is no better intern housing arrangement in all of D.C.!
— Jennifer Montazzoli, Summer 2016 & 2017 Resident
The quality young men and women who stay here truly make it shine season after season. It attracts genuine, spirited, and intelligent residents who together transform a brick building near Capitol Hill into a bastion of intellectual conversation about the ideas and principles which define our country. Many of the individuals I connected with during my several stays in the building remain among my closest friends today. These devoted friendships are beautiful phenomena unique to this Intern Housing program.

The Johnson Building was easily the best part of my time in D.C. and I would love to be able to share my great experience and encourage others to live there in the future.

This photo was taken after our internship graduation in August of 2016. The four of us began the summer as perfect strangers and ended as a team. One year later, the four of us graduated from our respective universities and moved back to D.C. as roommates.

Unlike anything else in Washington, D.C.

Our Intern Housing Program is not only a unique experience to live, grow, and build community, we are conveniently located at a prime location on Capitol Hill. Our location is within a short walk to the U.S. Capitol, U.S. House and U.S. Senate office buildings, as well as the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, and Union Station, a major public transportation center. The Program’s current home at The Johnson Building, and its future home, currently under construction, The E. W. Richardson Building (opening 2018), are located adjacent to The Heritage Foundation.

The E. W. Richardson Building

Opening 2018

designed as world class Intern Housing

In 2018, The E. W. Richardson Building will open its doors. This Building was specifically designed to house our Intern Housing Program with a goal of building a first-rate experience for future intern-residents to live, grow, and build community. The Building primarily consists of 2-bedroom, 2-bath units and some 1-bedroom, 1-bath units. There are study rooms, a large multi-purpose lounge, fitness center, and laundry facilities on-site. The E.W. Richardson Building is a training ground for the future; that next job, opportunity, and professional network begins here.

As a parent I was nervous about leaving my son to live on his own in Washington D.C. But after moving him in, I was amazed at how welcoming and friendly of an environment the Johnson Building was. My son loved his experience with the Johnson Building and all of the friends he made so much, that he spent another semester interning in D.C.
