There are several approaches to find and secure temporary housing during your summer internship.
- Contact local college and university housing offices
The institutions may offer summer housing in their own residence halls, or may know of places to contact.
- Utilize location-specific resources
Look at local newspapers or housing databases. Contact real estate agents or the local YMCA or YWCA.
- Download our City Housing Resource List, which provides some city-specific resources for many major U.S. cities.
- Ask your internship provider
Your summer internship provider may recommend affordable housing convenient to the job site. If you are searching for roommates, the organization might also be able to connect you with other summer interns.
Post a message in LinkedIn’s Colby College Alumni and Friends group inquiring if any local group members can offer suggestions of area summer housing options.
