Where do you live during an internship out-of-state ?

Q: Hey Intern Queen,

I found out about you through my school newspaper which happens to be your alum, GO KNIGHTS! I wanted to know with all your experience with finding internships where did you stay? Because I have been really interested in interns in LA or NY such as BET or NBC but most of the big time internships don’t offer pay or a place to stay and I would like to know how did you do it? It’s the only thing holding me back. I don’t know anyone that lives in these places such as family, friends.


A: This seems to be a very common question lately 🙂 If you want to intern in New York City check out the NYU Summer program which can include a meal plan. You can also look into summer housing opportunities with some of the other colleges in the NYC area like THE NEW SCHOOL, COLUMBIA, LOYOLA. When I went to Los Angeles for the summer I subleased a room in an apartment off of Craigslist.com which worked out very well. Another summer I stayed at Oakwoods Corporate Housing which can is expensive but provides an “internship discount” and an experience of a lifetime.

All the best,

Lauren Berger “The Intern Queen”

I just applied for a summer internship at The White House and I’m an out of state intern. Do you know of any cheap and safe places to stay in or near the DC area?
