It’s not too late to find Summer 2014 Internship Housing!

So, you just scored an amazing summer internship- congrats! Now it is time to move on to the next challenge- searching for housing. Finding a cheap place to live in NYC for the summer is no easy task, and can be very time consuming.


The best place to start is by checking out summer housing at local colleges. Many of these do not require you to take a course in order to stay. The goal of the list below is to make it easier for those of you looking for reliable housing this summer. This list only includes school housing options for Summer 2014, however, it is important to know there are many other options, like finding an apartment through a broker, or finding a sublet. (P.S. Looking for an apartment and not student housing? Check this article out)

A lot of questions one may ask while finding housing is what is the cheapest. It is hard to say what is cheapest or the best because a lot of that is based on your preferences- if you want to share housing, if you want a meal plan, if you want air conditioning, or even the location in proximity to your internship. Please note, this is not an advertisement for schools, it is 100% and completely made as a resource for you to help make this process easier.

Do you have any suggestions for those looking for housing, or have you secured a spot at one of these locations? Let us know in the comments!
