Temporary is just that, temporary. Companies provide temporary housing to bridge the gap between arrival at your destination and having time to look for a home to lease or purchase after you have been in your new city for a while. Place2Place offers both accompanied and unaccompanied assistance for temporary housing programs.
There are several options.
Temporary housing/corporate - Human Resources arranges the temporary housing for you - it is a furnished apartment with all utilities included.
Temporary housing/hotel - Also called Extended Stay hotel that offers a small apartment type accommodation with a kitchenette, onsite laundry facilities, gym, and pool.
Temporary housing/apartment - finding an apartment on a month to month basis and renting the furniture for an additional fee.
