Student Housing

While Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine does not provide housing for incoming students, below you will find information and resources that may be helpful as you begin your search for housing in Scranton.

The resource guide has been compiled for informational purposes only to assist students at Geisinger Commonwealth with the task of securing housing as the institution does not own property for students to lease.  The School of Medicine has not inspected or investigated these property listings or property owners and does not endorse any of the properties listed.  Because the information contained in this listing was obtained from sources not associated with Geisinger Commonwealth, the institution does not accept or assume responsibility for the accuracy of the material, the condition of the properties for lease, or the terms of the lease agreement. 

Student Housing Resources Years 1 & 2

Throughout the application process, incoming students have access to an online portal page. This page includes a list of other Geisinger Commonwealth students who are seeking a roommate. 

Student Housing Resources Years 3 & 4

During the 3rd and 4th years of medical school students will move to an assigned regional campus to participate in clinical rotations. This will require students to secure new living accommodations in a new community. During the community week experiences in the 2nd  year, students will have time to explore potential properties and make arrangements with landlords for their final two years in the region. In addition, the Office of Student Affairs hosts regional panel sessions with current 3rd year students in January.
