University Conferences & Guest Services

Many colleges boast about having campuses near the Nation's Capital, but American University's campus is Washington, DC.

Each summer (mid-May through mid-August), thousands of guests from across the globe travel to Washington, DC to host and attend professional conferences, complete academic internships, or enroll in summer session courses at American University. The University Conference & Guest Services Team works to provide comfortable accommodations, dining, and meeting space at a reasonable price to meet your needs.

In Summer 2015, American University hosted more than 80 conferences and events and more than 650 summer interns on our campus!

We are located within a few miles of some of DC's most historic sites. Art, history, culture, shopping, entertainment, championship sports- it's all here. The galleries, restaurants, stores, and parks of DC are at your fingertips. Explore the National Mall, shop the many stores of Georgetown, or visit one of the many Smithsonian Museums in and around the DC Metro Area.

The dynamic and international District of Columbia can be your summer campus and your summer home. Come enjoy all that this city and American University have to offer!
