People don’t often think of how campus residence arrangements might impact education on a college campus. But organizing the living situation of a group of rowdy undergraduates must take an immense amount of planning, strategizing, political savvy, and continual research. That’s why every year the Association of College and University Housing Officers – International (ACUHO-I) organizes an annual conference to tackle issues such as effective methods of training resident assistants, addressing potential problems with students, forging campus/community partnerships, and creating effective living situations for college students. This year’s meeting takes place at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park between June 28th and 30th.

College undergraduates begin their first year at a university unprepared for a host of issues they hadn’t faced when they lived in the comfort of their parent’s homes. For this reason, organizations such as the ACUHO-I serve an essential function integrating first year college students into the life of a university.
Our D.C. Inn is a university of sorts, where conference attendees from nearby hotels seek respite from the hustle of a conference. They also network with others who come to D.C. for a myriad of reasons and sit around the breakfast table discussing political issues and topics of all kinds. We hope that when members of the ACUHO-I seek accommodation, they choose our Washington D.C. BnB.
