i. Location

Corcoran student housing is located at 2424 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20037, midway between the Corcoran’s Downtown and Georgetown campuses. Each apartment is fully furnished to meet bedroom, study, storage, and dining needs. Apartments feature wall-to-wall carpeting, one private, full-sized bathroom and dressing room, and a kitchen with a suite of full-sized appliances, including a refrigerator, gas stove, microwave, and dishwasher. Housing features a specially designed community room reserved for students and an on-site gym with 24-hour access at no additional fee. A laundry room and vending machines are also available on-site. The front desk is staffed 24 hours-a-day and there is secured, underground bicycle storage for Corcoran students. The cost of housing covers all housing costs includes a private telephone number for each apartment with voicemail and unlimited local calls, internet access, basic cable television, heat, air-conditioning, gas, and electricity. The director of housing and resident assistants are available to assist students.

ii. Cost and Fees

Rent for a shared apartment with one or two roommates for the 2013-2014 school year is $10,900. Students will be billed $5,450 in July and November. Because the housing contract for Corcoran students covers the academic year, students are not committed to a 12-month lease. Students are not required to pay an application fee, first and last month’s rent as deposit, or be subjected to a credit check. The lease includes placement for both fall and spring semesters. All students wishing to live in housing must turn in a completed application, a $400 security deposit, and a $250 damage deposit.

If a student should lose their room key, they can contact the building’s front desk staff and they can make you a temporary one time access key for $5 or $10 for a new replacement key. These charges will be deducted from the student’s damage deposit at the end of the year.

iii. Housing Assignments

Returning students will receive secondary priority after the housing deadline for new students has passed. Students requesting a single studio are charged for double occupancy. The Corcoran will make every effort to accommodate the request, but cannot guarantee that all requests will be fulfilled. For information regarding housing accommodations contact the director of housing.

iv. Semester Break and End-of-Year Rules

At the end of the fall semester, students must vacate the building 48 hours after their last class for winter break. Students do not have to move possessions out of apartments; however they cannot enter the building for the duration of winter break. At the end of the spring semester, students must move out of housing 48 hours after their last class. Please see the student calendar for specific dates.

v. Parking

Corcoran housing students have two options for parking: secured, underground parking is available directly below Pennsylvania House on a space-available basis. Students must contact Pennsylvania House’s management company, DC Suites, at (202) 331-5000 for arrangements and monthly payments. Alternatively overnight, semester-long parking is available only to housing students at the Corcoran’s Georgetown campus. The flat fee for 2013-2014 is $175 per semester.
