Our 2013 Summer Intern Housing has closed its registration for the year. Information for 2014 Summer Intern Center will be available on this site in October! Thanks for your interest!


Each Summer, from the end of May to the beginning of August, UW-Milwaukee's University Housing partners with more than 30 Milwaukee-based companies to provide housing options in Cambridge Commons for their summer interns. We provide an affordable, safe, and relaxing home, for interns as they prepare for their professional experiences. Sponsoring companies have confidence that their summer interns are being housed in an engaging environment with other young emerging professionals.

Rooms are available from May 26, 2014 through August 10, 2014. A minimum 4-week contract is required.
