Summer Intern Housing
Notre Dame de Namur University is pleased to provide affordable housing for students participating in internships with businesses and other academic institutions in Silicon Valley.
A short-term housing program for students from other colleges and universities coming to the Bay Area for internship-related degree programs is available during the summer months.
For area employers, the intern housing program constitutes a valuable resource for recruiting students from colleges and universities across the country to spend their summer in the Bay area.
Participants in the program must be at least 18 years of age or older and must stay for at least a two-week period. All summer Academic Interns will be required to complete the online student information forms for identification and key processing.
