I assume you are renting it with a few other folks and are younger so it could be that the landlord is trying to take advantage of you. On the flip side this could get very expensive for him or her but I am sure you could just nicely cite the implied warranty of habitability and ask him to let you break the lease, stay in a hotel till the problem is fixed, or reduce your rent till its fixed. I would pick one of the first 2.
But to answer your question, yes you could probably move out citing one of many lines in the DC code or common law. But it could be a headache so sometimes its better to talk it out.
