Housing Guide among cities

Although Narom Travel Albania is not responsible to secure housing for you, we’ve listed several resources on this page to help you find it. While some employers are able to arrange housing for you, many are not. So in most cases, you’ll be responsible for finding housing that is inexpensive, comfortable, safe and close to your work site. We encourage you to ask any potential landlord a list of questions to help ensure that’s it’s a safe and secure living situation.

Please note: the resources on this page were chosen specifically for Irish students on our program who are more likely to have longer programs and stay in big cities. For more housing resources, visit our Work & Travel USA housing page and Cultural Compass.
