I'm planning to work in Gettysburg this summer (June 1-September 30, to be exact), however, I haven't found a place to live yet. I tried searching for apartments to rent online, but so far nothing comes up and I'm not sure I'll be able to find anything. Two other students will be arriving shortly after me, so we would like to rent an apartment or probably a small house together.

Any information on who directly I could contact or where I could look for an apartment/house would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

    Since you are not looking for a year lease, traditional apartments may not be suitable. Your summer employer, who would have had transient help for many years, should be your source for suggestions. You may find inexpensive private homes that take summer help. I would guess that there are a lot of temp workers in Gettysburg, so there must be a way to deal with it. I hope you get something better than migrant farm workers have.
