See here for advice and ideas on how to find yourself housing Stateside. We don't provide housing but we can tell you how previous J1'ers did it.
Our top tips for finding J1 accomodation
Book more hostel time than you think you need
You may get lucky and find a place on your second day, or it may take you a week or more to find accommodation that suits your needs.
Get the low down
Facebook groups, previous J1 students' feedback - these can be great resources for your J1 housing search.
Be very careful
IF you accept housing without seeing it first. If possible, always view accommodation before you pay for anything. Be aware that some housing is very cheap for a reason.
