Tips for Finding Housing on Assignment
- Know your lifestyle preferences, dealbreakers, and companions.
- While considering options, keep in mind the quality of the housing, any amenities or necessities included in the rental, proximity to the facility, and flexibility of the lessor.
- Consider a variety of options: room rentals, house sharing, hotels/extended stays, RVs, campgrounds, and apartment sublets.
- Go for furnished housing so you can travel as lightly as possible.
- Start researching early, ideally during the submittal process.

Facebook as a Housing Resource
Your network of friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances on Facebook can be a useful resource while searching for housing. Crowdsource ideas and leads by posting directly to your feed. There are numerous groups on Facebook dedicated to “In Search of” (ISO) posts by travelers and available housing posts by lessors.
Here are some places to start:
You can search these groups for existing ISO and available housing posts or create a new post. Group members who have experience in the area may comment with leads or advice, or lessors can comment with information on their rentals.
