Summer internship accommodation
Looking for a place to stay for your internship abroad?
YOUR NEW HOME
Getting a summer internship abroad is exciting but after the first exhilarating moments of getting accepted have passed, you probably started writing a to-do list to stay on top of everything. Besides all the administrative and bureaucratic tasks, finding accommodation for the time of your internship should be high up on your list.
Finding internship accommodation on a medium-term basis can be an excruciatingly long process: staying in a hotel for 6 months is going to be too expensive, hostels are usually too crowded and noisy to stay for longer periods and finding a tenant that leases a room or flat for under a year can prove to be an impossible task.
Which is where FlatClub comes in! We specialise in offering medium-term accommodation and most of our hosts are happy to take you in for the duration of your internship without breaking the bank.
Not familiar with the city? We’ve written extensive relocation guides with detailed information on city-specific advice so you can master every challenge that may come your way in your new home.

TIPS FOR FINDING AFFORDABLE PLACES
Do some research when it comes to which parts of the city you are moving to are occupied by students and young professionals - a good sign of affordable rent. Most cities inner centres are too expensive to live in and the trendier areas are usually found on the fringes of the city centre.

Zone 1 of London’s public transport system is mostly too expensive to live in and most student and young professional areas can be found within Zone 2. East as well as South London have become increasingly popular and you will be able to find a room for under £700 a month in these areas.
Most of Manhattan from Downtown to the northern end of Central Park are too expensive to live on an internship budget. So are the western parts of Brooklyn around hipster posterchild Williamsburg. New trendy and affordable areas can be found in Upper Manhattan, Queens and eastern Brooklyn. Rent varies but expect to pay around $1000 a month for a room.
While Berlin is still incredibly cheap compared to other big cities, rents have been rising steadily. Areas such as Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain used to be the best neighbourhoods to live in for interns and young professionals but have become too expensive in recent years. Look for flats in Neukoelln, Wedding or Kreuzberg.
