After an application has been reviewed and accepted, a room deposit of $800 is required to reserve a room. The deposit is refundable one week after check-out pending no damage to the room or ISH-DC property and that the resident contract is fulfilled. Please read the “Changes and Cancellation Guidelines” for additional information.
On arrival, residents pay at least one full month rent and payment is due on the first of each month thereafter.
- There is a 5% late fee for payments made after the 5th of the month.
- Residents must give 45 days notice of moving out in writing; otherwise residents will be charged for 45 days from the day they give notice.
- If you leave the House for a holiday or any other temporary leave prior to the end of your stated reservation dates, room and board charges will apply.
Payment of fees may be made with traveler’s checks, personal checks drawn on a U.S. Bank, a bank transfer, and Visa or Master Card. Checks should be made payable to the International Student House. ISH-DC does not accept any cash payments.
