Housing Resources

When beginning your housing search, start by checking with classmates and friends to see where they are interning, or if they have contacts in the location you’ll be interning. You may be able to share an apartment or sublet to cut down costs. Talking with your network may yield viable possibilities.

Many colleges and universities open up their residence halls for short-term, affordable rentals to students in the area during the summer; check individual college websites or contact institutions to inquire about housing. College newspapers may also list information on student-friendly apartments or sublets.

As you begin your search, prepare a budget to determine how much you can afford to spend on housing. If you choose to share living arrangements, talk about financial limitations to assure you are in agreement. Before signing any rental or sublet agreements, be sure to thoroughly read all contracts and make sure you, and any potential roommate, are clear about all terms of the agreement.

If you are looking outside university housing, consider arriving before the start of your internship to secure housing, allowing you to physically see properties.
