Co-op/Intern Housing Resources

CouchAre you looking for a place to live during your co-op or internship? Start by talking to your human resources representative at the place of your employment. They may be able to help you, perhaps by providing housing for you, helping you arrange housing, offering local housing information, or giving you the names of other interns to contact about living together. When students have had to find housing on their own, many have reported contacting local colleges and universities regarding living in residence halls, searching online rental ads in local newspapers, contacting realtors, and using web sites like those listed below.
