Most students find low-cost Field Work Term housing through personal contacts, sublet/rent as a group, or live at home. About half of first-year students take positions in their hometowns and live at home for their first FWT. The College also provides housing offers from Bennington alumni and parents willing to host a student during FWT. Some employers offer housing in exchange for a job, or can offer suggestions about inexpensive housing in the area.

Additionally, the College has compiled lists of short-term housing resources in major U.S. cities.
