Intern Housing

Midtown Detroit is a great place to live, work and play. WSU welcomes interns who wish to reside on the campus of Wayne State University during their internship. We offer, safe, convenient and affordable housing for interns who are employed in Detroit and the surrounding areas. Spring/Summer intern housing is available from May 10 to August 8, 2020 in the Anthony Wayne Drive Apartments.

As the plan for the Fall/Winter semesters housing develops, information regarding intern housing will become available. Please check back here for updates or email to receive a notification if applications can be accepted.

Interns are required to contract for a minimum of 30 consecutive nights. All requests are on a first come first served basis. Enrollment at Wayne State University is not a requirement for intern housing. A reservation for a single requires a minimum 60 night stay. Apartments are assigned only after full payment for the contracted dates has been received. Rate information is available directly in the application when choosing an apartment type.
