Housing

Once you’ve landed an internship, it may be possible you need to seek out housing for the duration of your employment. Use the following tips to make the housing search process easier!

  • Report your employment and opt-in to sharing your contact information so the Business Career Center can connect you with Smeal students moving to the area.
  • Ask your employer – Some employers offer housing options, roommate matching and/or can offer suggestions on places to live.
  • Connect with local universities in the area. Some universities open up on-campus housing for summer sublets.
  • Think about your network – do you have family or friends you could live with? This could offer you great cost savings!
