"When I graduated, I wanted to stay in the DC area to start my career. Thanks to TMH I can reside here in DC and enjoy the city to the fullest. I love heading down to Eastern Market on the weekend with friends or going on a scenic run to the Capitol Building. I love it here!"

"TMH provides dining services twice a day, it's within ten minutes walking distance to Union Station, offers 24/7 security, and the building staff are nice. I think it's a great option for a single young woman looking to get into the DC metro area."

TMH Building

TMH is in the heart of DC and offers safe, affordable, convenient housing for women who are working, attending school or interning in our nation’s capital. TMH has been welcoming and empowering women since 1887!

Room and Board

Tuck into one of our rooms, each fully furnished and with either a view overlooking 2nd Street or our private garden, and make it yours.

Our Story

Few residence halls boast a history that stretches back to 1833, one that is punctuated by a Congressional charter – as well as an appearance by Eleanor Roosevelt. Ours Does.

FAQ

Curious about what to bring? If parking is available – or if you’ll have a key to the front door? Maybe you have a question about our dining hall.

Resident Resources

Room and board is due on the first of every month. TMH does not issue payment notices. A $20.00 late fee is charged everyday beginning at 9:00 pm on the 5th day of the month until the room and board payment is received. If you are unable to make your monthly payment for any reason, please speak to management immediately.

Room and board includes the first day of the month until the morning of the last day of the month or until the morning of the day of check-out, whichever day comes first.

In the event that a resident does not stay the entire month, rent will be prorated within the same month. To view the pro-rated fee schedule and a list of other fees—click here: TMH Pro-Rated Fee Schedule 6-1-2022
