Attention: Landlords

Due to the unpredictable trajectory of the COVID19 pandemic there is a risk that many summer student internships will not come together. We advise landlords and students alike to consider this current reality in making decisions regarding rental or lease agreements. If a student makes a decision, based on the current uncertainty of the situation, to abandon their LANL internship offer or if a LANL organization decides to cancel the appointment we respectfully request landlords to return all deposits, fees, and advance rent payments without prejudice. Thank you so much for your patience in these extraordinary circumstances. If any questions should arise, please contact Josefina Salazar via email to student-housing@lanl.gov.
