Exploring Intern Housing Options in Chicago 

Are you a college or graduate student looking for an internship in Chicago? If so, you’re probably wondering what your housing options are. Chicago is a big city with a lot of internships and other opportunities, but it can be overwhelming to find the right housing for you. Never fear—we’ve got you covered! In this article, we’ll explore the different types of intern housing options available in Chicago. Read on to learn more! 

A Variety of Options Available 

The first thing to consider when exploring intern housing options in Chicago is whether you want to live alone or with roommates. Both can be great choices depending on your situation and preferences. If you want to live alone, there are plenty of one-bedroom apartments available throughout the city. On the other hand, if you’d like to save money while having some company around, there are many two-bedroom and even three-bedroom apartments that would be perfect for sharing with roommates. 

If you don’t have any luck finding an apartment that suits your needs, there are plenty of other housing options in Chicago as well. Did you know that there are furnished dorm rooms at local colleges that offer short-term leases during the summer months specifically for interns seeking short-term living arrangements? College campuses in Chicago are the preferred option for summer intern housing, since they tend to have amenities all in one spot and are centrally located to attractions and transportation.        

Making Smart Housing Choices 

Once you’ve decided on your ideal living arrangement, it’s important to make sure that it meets all your needs—and fits into your budget! Before signing any short or long term housing agreement, read through the terms carefully and make sure that everything is exactly as promised before committing yourself financially. Also, research the neighborhood where your summer internship housing is located; get familiar with things like nearby transportation options and amenities such as grocery stores or parks nearby. 

Chicago has something for everyone when it comes to intern housing! Whether you’re looking for an individual apartment or would prefer shared accommodations with roommates, there are many great options available throughout the city. Make sure to do thorough research before signing a housing agreement or making any payments so that you end up with just what you need for your intern housing. Chicago colleges and universities are an ideal option for anyone seeking short or long term housing.
