Want to make a career change in the HVAC/R or welding industries, but you don’t live near a trade college? ETI School of Skilled Trades can help you. We are working with EDUrent to help non-local students find housing options. ETI has partnered with EDUrent to help students find properties in the vicinity of the ETI campus that have short-term lease options on a budget. It only takes five minutes to create a profile and an EDUrent Housing Consultant will contact you to discuss your housing options and resources like searching for roommates or saving for rent.

What are the steps to find housing assistance with EDUrent?

  1. Go to and create a quick profile.
  2. Begin to search for locations near our school: 500 Joliet Road, Suite 100, Willowbrook, IL 60527.
  3. An EDUrent Housing Consultant will also contact you to discuss your housing options and review resources.
  4. Plan to move in one to two weeks before your HVAC/R or welding program starts, so you are settled into your new housing and focused on school training when it begins. If you need any assistance during the housing search, call (855) 508-8300 and speak to a specialized housing consultant.
