Purdue to offer on-campus summer housing for interns

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University will offer on-campus housing to student and community interns this summer.

The affordable living opportunity in Hawkins Hall is extended to any department that may be sponsoring or hiring interns for the summer and will offer two flexible meal plans, as well as access to lounges and a full-size kitchen, and proximity to the Memorial Union and Chauncey Hill.

“Our intern housing program provides comfortable, convenient and flexible housing, complete with all the amenities of on-campus living at an affordable rate,” says Randi Purvis, summer intern program manager for University Residences. “Interns will have ease of access to all campus buildings, local businesses and restaurants with the comfort of living close to where they work.”

Any student intern may apply for housing. They must be working at Purdue for the summer and must be “sponsored” by an on-campus department. A designated contact person will serve as a liaison for the student before and during their internship.

Community interns working for Tippecanoe County area businesses also are eligible for Purdue housing. They must meet the following criteria:

• Must be 18 or older.

• Must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program at a university.

• Must be employed for the summer at a company in the Lafayette/West Lafayette area.

The intern’s employer must also confirm that a full background check has been performed on the intern as a condition of their employment with the company.

Students in the Brazilian Science Mobility Program (BSMP) are eligible for housing, provided they submit the IIE authorization letter and Purdue sponsor form.
