Summer Housing Guide

If you’ve been following this blog for the past month, you probably saw a few posts about housing. In case you haven’t and you’re thinking to yourself right now, “holy guacamole I don’t know where I’m living this summer!” don’t worry, we’ve got ya covered!

Call it an East Coast bias, (after all that’s where Midd is) but the top three cities for summer internships are New York, Boston, and Washington D.C. So that’s where we started creating City Guides to help interns find affordable, convenient summer housing. However, there are links to housing resources in other cities as well, including Philly, San Francisco and Chicago.

The Housing Guides are very useful because they help you compare different housing options. Each listing has the name of the university or company, location/neighborhood, weekly price, type of accommodation (double, apartment etc), and any extras like meals.
