Local info

Housing:

Washington DC Metro area, and the surrounding areas like Alexandria and Arlington, is expensive. A 1-bedroom apartment can start around $1,800+ per month, unfurnished.

HRC places over 30 J1's in D.C. every year so there are plenty of other J1's to help you get settled in the area!

We recommend that you consider rooming with another J-1 or local share the cost of the living. The metro is very reliable, which allows the option to live outside the city where the cost of living will be a bit less expensive.

One of our most recent J-1 candidate has rented a room at the 'The Connecticut House', contact information is listed below:
