I'm so pleased to hear that so many students have received internships in Los Angeles for this summer ! You should be so proud of yourselves for really taking the internship initiative ! I know that the living situation in Los Angeles can be really tough. I have partnered with a great company, Equity Corporate Housing Worldwide to provide an excellent housing option for students coming to Los Angeles for the summer. I personally toured the property a few weeks back, and I think it's gorgeous !
The apartments come furnished and if you want to live with a roomate, let me know, and I can put you in touch with other students going to Los Angeles this summer. The Equity apartments are located in Marina Del Rey (super close to the beach) and are right across from OTIS College. The buildings are stacked with students and interns over the summer. Each apartment is just the right size and will feel just like home for the summer.
When I interned in Los Angeles (coming from Florida) I stayed in furnished corporate housing. It made the entire process so much smoother. My parents and I didn't have to go searching for a cheap bed, table, desk or anything because the apartment was already furnished.
