Information to help students investigate these options is provided below. Students may also contact the IWP Student Government Association for tips and assistance at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Neighborhoods in northwest D.C. near the Institute include Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, WoodleyPark, and ClevelandPark, while Embassy Row; Capitol Hill, Georgetown, and Foggy Bottom are within a short bus or Metro ride.
