This is something that should be listed on the "benefits" page of most programs' websites. There was only 1 place I interviewed at that would provide a housing stipend. You are responsible for finding your own place (and paying for it) at most programs. If your spouse has a visa, there's no reason why they can't stay with you in your own private apt.

The program that offer housing, usually charge you a reduced rent, I have no heard of a program offering it for free
