Temporary Housing for Those Working Out of State

Posted on Jun 4, 2020

Today, jobs that require employees to live in one state and work in another are abundant. If you’re working out of state, it can be difficult to find time to rest and recharge.

We know that working can come with various stresses, especially if it requires you to temporarily move to a new place. That’s why we’re happy to offer this guide filled with a variety of temporary housing options. Whether you’re a traveling nurse moving for a few weeks to be near a hospital, or a remote journalist on assignment in a new place, these housing options will make your move easier and give you a home away from home.

All you have to do is unpack your suitcase, set out your toothbrush, and settle in.

Select Corporate Housing

For those in the medical field who are working out of state, Select Corporate Housing is a convenient option. Offering housing for healthcare workers and traveling nurses, they understand the emotional and time demands that go into the work you do. As they say—you take care of people all day; let us do the same for you. With a customized solution that’s both safe and easy, Select Corporate Housing focuses on all the things that the demands of your job include. Quiet communities allow you to sleep when your schedule allows, whether that’s in the morning or at night. Bills are consolidated into one check so that you have more time to relax after a long day, and convenient locations ensure that you’re not too far from work. They also work with local service specialists to offer virtual tours of your new city and all the best places to explore and unwind when you have some time off.

Rotating Room

Whether you need a room or have a room, Rotating Room allows you to list or find short term housing for medical students. The company was designed by medical s tudents, for medical students, to create a positive community when you’re living in one state and working in another. Both listing and inquiring about sublets are free of charge for medical students who are completing away rotations. At first, non-students (like nurses, doctors, and professors) could also list their rooms for rent to students for a small fee, which Rotating Room called “sponsored sublets” and came with extra features like photos and highlighting on the map. Eventually, in 2020, they launched a new site and the “sponsored sublet” feature became available to anyone who wants to highlight their listing. Plans are designed to be flexible and renters can pay upfront for the quarter, the whole year, or month-to-month. The good news (especially for those looking to save some money) is that if you pay in full for the year, you can receive up to 40% off the monthly rate. Working out of state can be stressful, but Rotating Room does a good job of building a community for medical students and making the process easy.

InTown Suites

When there are big building projects in a certain location, a construction staff are often brought on board to help out. For this reason, construction workers are often on the go. InTown Suites offers temporary housing for construction workers who need to relocate to cities or states far from home. In-Room kitchens provide full-size refrigerators, microwaves, and two-burner stoves to make meal planning and preparation easy before a day on the job site. Housing locations are typically a quick drive or walk from a grocery store, and the living spaces offer a two-person dining area for a sit-down meal in the evening. If you’re a construction company looking for rooms that are more spacious than standard hotel rooms with storage, a full-size bathroom, and closets, put In-Town Suites on your list of spots to check out. In addition, they also offer prepaid and direct billing options with no room deposits or credit cards required.


If you’re working out of state, or out of the country, Sublet is a great place for worldwide temporary rental housing options. From Paris to Manhattan, fine-tune what you’re looking for and find the perfect spot. Choose between a short term and long term rental, furnished and unfurnished, and a private rental or room rental. There’s a large database that allows landlords, leaseholders, and roommates to post for free and then be contacted by interested tenants. This is a good option if you’re on the hunt for flexibility and want to be in charge of direct contact with your landlord or future roommate. Whether you’re a remote worker, a traveling medical professional, or a freelancer on assignment, Sublet will most likely have a spot in the area you’re moving to.
