    get someone set up

    I've got you set up in town. Our old place.

    What does "get somone set up" mean?

    ​I have arranged for you to have somewhere to live.

    Re: get someone set up

    In this context, it means a place to live, as Piscean has already explained. However, it could also be used to mean something like 'I have arranged for everything you need to start this job/project/task'.

    "Don't worry about any supplies. I've got you all set up and ready to start when you show up."

    Re: get someone set up

    I hadn't thought of the interpretation that Skrej suggested, but I think it's just as likely as mine. In my interpretation, 'place' means 'place where we used to live'. In Skrej's it means 'place where we used to work'.
