American University offers preferential rates for Inter-American Human Rights Moot Court participants and judges wishing to stay in university accommodation. University accommodation is modest but the rates are more competitive than local hotels.
Team members, coaches, observers, and bailiffs will stay in a residence hall in North campus and judges will stay in Centennial Hall Suites. Both residence halls feature 24-hour complex desk operations, air conditioning, wireless internet access, parking, twin size beds, and community bathroom facilities. American University is conveniently located less than a mile from the Tenleytown-AU metro stop and the University offers a free shuttle from main campus to the metro and the competition site throughout the day.
Please note that if you request a double room but do not have a roommate, you will be assigned a roommate. American University housing rules require that both roommates be of the same gender, and smoking is not allowed in the dormitories.
Extending your housing
American University can accommodate competitors and judges who wish to stay in our dorms for a few days after the competition. However, persons who wish to extend their stay in the AU dorms must specify the exact dates of the extension in the housing application. In addition, payment for these extra days must be made in advance.
American University cannot hold onto luggage for participants who have officially checked out of campus housing.
