A limited number of reasonably priced dormitory rooms are available on the American University campus. These are pleasant rooms, but not fancy. These rooms do NOT have private bathrooms. If you want nicer accomodation, you must stay in a hotel. Note that there are no hotels within walking distance of American University.

The dorm rooms will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis. The rooms are available from Wednesday evening June 2, through (inclusive) Saturday night June 5. If you need a room either before or after these dates, please contact us directly and we may be able to reserve a dorm room.

Type of room fee
Single room $49/person/night
