Unlike anything else in Washington, D.C.

The Richardson Building 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 former home at The Johnson Building, and its new home, the recently developed E. W. Richardson Building (opened May 2018), are located adjacent to The Heritage Foundation.


The E. W. Richardson Building

Opened May 2018

designed as world class Intern Housing

In May 2018, The E. W. Richardson Building opened its doors. This Building was specifically designed to house our Intern Housing Program with a goal of building a first-rate experience for 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.

Formerly housed in the Johnson Building, we took a thriving program and better positioned it to maximize the investment into America's next generation of leaders.

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.
