Hello,
I was offered an internship in Orland Park, IL. I do not have a car but I have no problem traveling for work every day. I was wondering where do most college interns stay at. I would like to be close to my internship but I also want to live in a housing area where there is a lot of college aged students and must be safe. Please give me some advise. Thank you. =)

I don't think you'd be able to manage without a car in Orland Park.

Well, I can't speak for the suburbs...which is what Orland Park is and if you are wondering about suburban housing, then I would ask in the subrbs forum (this is the city forum). My experience with Orland Park is that it's a lot more car centric (like most suburbs).

However, if you want to live in the city...I would say that I'd check a few things such as if your workplace is near a Metra station. If so, then it might be conceivable to live in the city near younger people. BUT that's not to say OP doesn't have young people living there. For that..ask the suburbs forum.

I grew up out there, and depending on where you stayed you could live car-free, but you'd be quite limited.

I don't really think there's intern housing, or even college housing per se. It's suburban and family oriented. Maybe get a deal on on a motel / hotel for your stay (negotiate a monthly rate) and get around by bicycle.

Don't expect much in the way of action or excitement though.
