Fort George G Meade


I live in MI, and am going to school for Health & Wellness. I came across a summer internship that I'm considering applying for after I discuss it with DH. 

We currently rent a 1050 sq. ft. 2 bd/2 ba apartment, and if we moved to MD for the summer we'd sublease our apartment. Just curious how much housing costs are around that area. We're fine with moving into some place smaller. Preferably no less than 650 sq. ft. though. 

However, the internship states, "Subsidized housing accommodations are available upon request." - It is a paid internship, but I don't know how much, and how much would be towards housing. 

Thanks in advance!

  • In general, housing in this area is very expensive. I'll throw out $1000/month as a ballpark for a 1 bedroom apartment, but it's been a few years since I was looking for an apt (at the time I was checking out a 1 bedroom for $1200 about 15 miles from Fort Meade, just to give you an idea). Hopefully someone else will chime in with some more specific info! I would definitely get some info on the subsidized housing and see what's available.

  • the fort has someone that can help you with this.  with all the BRAC stuff they have offices dedicated to this stuff.  I'm not sure how the short term lease thing would work, you might be better off in a homewood suites or one of those extended stay places.  expect to pay 1200+ per month for rent in the area.

    check with the BWI business partnership, they may have some info for you.

  • Thank you for your replies ladies Smile

    I obviously have no idea if I'll even get the internship, and even if I do it's not for another 7-8 months so I just want to be somewhat prepared. 
  • I own a house about 5 miles from the base and I rent it out for $1450, but it's a 2 bed, so I would assume around 1000-1200 for a 1 bed depending on location.

    Good luck and check back with us if you do, so we can give you the skinny on the area :)

  • I have a friend who rents a 2BR apartment/sort of a house it has a backyard on base and it's $1500/mo with utilities. We live 5 miles from Ft. Meade and pay over $1800 for a 4BR TH. If you want to find cheaper rents, Laurel is a good bet. Try to stay in Howard or Anne Arundel counties.
