Conference Housing Accommodations

American University offers traditional residence halls, suite-style residence halls and apartment-style living. Our residence halls are among the best equipped in the metropolitan area. All rooms are air-conditioned with in-room temperature controls. Additionally, our entire campus - including the residence halls - has wireless internet connectivity for your convenience. All guests arrive to find their bed ready with linens, a blanket, pillow, pillowcase, and towel.

Traditional Style Residence Halls

Traditional double accommodation in our residence halls

Most conference guests stay in our traditional residence halls spaces. All floors are equipped with laundry, kitchen, lounge facilities, and separate communal men's and women's bathroom and shower facilities. 

  • Residence halls range in size and configuration with most of the halls having rooms that are 12' x 15' double rooms for shared occupancy and bathroom facilities located on the same floor (with individual shower and toilet stalls).
  • Common bathroom facilities are located on each wing of each residence hall floor and are designated by gender. Each bathroom has several shower stalls, toilet stalls and sinks.
  • Most rooms are doubles (accommodating two guests). Single and triple rooms are available, but in limited numbers.
