Housing resources for internships, co-ops or relocation for post-grad employment
This page is designed for students seeking resources to help find housing for opportunities not within commuting distance from Blacksburg.
For students looking for off-campus housing within Blacksburg, visit the Off-Campus Housing Office.
Help from your employer:
Your employer should be the first source of information and assistance if you are looking for housing for a short-term work assignment such as an internship or co-op, as well as post-graduation employment. Employers know that interns and co-op students, new graduates, and other employees who are relocating for the job, need assistance and information.
If they do not provide information directly, review the employer's website to determine if information is provided.
Review any verbal or written information given at any time during the process of application, interviewing, or the official offer letter.
If neither of the above yields information, ask! If you are offered an interview, during the interview process you might ask how have previous interns/co-ops found housing, and whether the employer provides information or assistance to new hires who are relocating for the work assignment. If you are offered a job, ask before accepting the offer.
If your employer does not provide any information or any assistance finding information, explore the resources below.
