Hi! I am looking to live in OC this summer with one or two other friends. We are hoping to find businesses that offer employee housing (we heard this is the cheapest way to go). Do you have any recommendations for businesses that do this? ! Or suggestions for cheap summer housing for 2-3 girls. Thanks!

I know Phillips offers some employee housing (click https://www.phillipsseafood.com/about-phillips/careers">here to apply), and in the past Trimper's did too. If you can't get housing through an employer, here are some other options:

(1) Checkout this seasonal housing information from the OC Chamber of Commerce.

(2) Watch the classified sections of  Maryland Coast Dispatch and Ocean City Today. Both of these newspapers have jobs and seasonal housing listings.

(3) Watch the Eastern Shore Craigslist housing section - lots of people connect to OC seasonal housing through this site.

(4) Even if you are not an international student, checkout E-Point Student Center - They help lots of international students find jobs and housing in OC, and could perhaps help you too. You can reach them at 410.289.9844.

No matter where you go, be sure you confirm you are dealing with a reputable source. A couple of years ago, several lifeguards got scammed by listings for places that demanded up-front rent payment for places that did not actually exist!

Good luck in your search!

A good starting is https://ocstudentcenter.com/housing/seasonal-housing-in-ocean-city-md/.  You can also find seasonal rentals on Craigslist.

You could look into Craigslist Eastern Shore for apartments.
