HI, I am looking at accepting a summer internship in Providence,RI. I would be working at the Providence VA Medical Center. I would need housing for 13 weeks. I am a grad school and do not have a lot of money. How realistic would it be for me to find a cheap, but safe sublease near this hospital?

Please be honest. I will use this information to determine if I should accept this position.

I would suggest you ask the HR Dept. at the hospital for suggestions, they should have information. 13 weeks is a short time. One alternative would be to find a family in the area who would be willing to "host" you. There is NO cheap housing anywhere in RI.

Someone else on here might have another alternative for short term accomodations.

Go on Craigslist and look for summer sublets on the East Side (College Hill, Wayland Square, Hope village) of Providence. A lot of students leave for the summer and sublet their apartments. I wouldn't look right around the VA hospital- the east Side is a short- about 10 min commute- and you'll like it much better than the VA neighborhood. Also Brown University maintains housing lists. Good luck!
