Housing Resources

Congratulations! ... you landed the job/internship. However, it is often the case that finding an internship for the summer or getting a job in a new city is only half the battle. You need to work out housing, travel and many other logistics, all on a budget.

To help you navigate the housing challenge, we've compiled the following guides for housing resources in three cities: New York, Boston and Washington, D.C.
Also remember that alumni can be a great source of leads about housing options in different cities. Check the Alumni Office website for a list of alumni chapters in many cities in the U.S. and internationally. It's a very helpful resource.

One other option for housing is ApartmentList.com. With over 1.8 million listings nationwide, it is a wonderful free resource for students to use to help them find housing.  The website pulls from over 100 different listing sources, so it's more of a one stop shop for apartments.
