From housing 30 interns initially to now accommodating between 500 and 600 interns each summer, the program has become a sought-after solution for both Atlanta companies and students. The demand is so high that we’re expanding housing capacity and actively seeking more accommodations for the upcoming summer.

The success isn’t just numerical; it’s financial too. With a 500% revenue growth in the last decade, the program not only keeps student fees reasonable but also contributes to vital campus improvements.

Georgia Tech’s Intern Lodging Program stands out as a premier choice, offering a unique and enriching experience within our campus community. For more information about Georgia Tech’s Intern Lodging Program check out the website for more details on how we’re setting new standards in intern housing.
