Interns facing housing shortage

-A A +A

Call goes out to community for spare rooms

By Carol A. Clark

Many of the thousand or more students who flood Los Alamos every summer to intern at Los Alamos National Laboratory encounter a lack of student housing.

UNM-Los Alamos has 64 efficiency apartments on 9th Street. Housing coordinator Betsey Suarzo said this morning all 64 units are already rented.

Jeanne Bridge of Plateau Property Management, which owns and manages three apartment complexes and a mobile home park in Los Alamos describes a similar situation.

“We stopped taking names for our waiting list in early April after it reached about 35 students,” Bridge said.

Brian Kiedrowski interned several summers at the lab before graduating from the University of Wisconsin at Madison with a doctorate degree in nuclear engineering last fall. He is now a Technical Staff Member.

“I’ve been a student intern coming out here since 2006 and during that time I’ve heard of many students having problems finding housing and I’ve encountered problems myself,” he said. “I’m chair of LANL’s Student Association and our goal is to help students.”
