Where you choose to live is a central part of your study abroad experience. We have a variety of accommodation options to suit your lifestyle, budget and needs. You can live with other EC students or in a homestay with local English speakers.

Residences often have lively atmospheres suitable for anyone who loves socialising. Our accommodation options are convenient for public transport, making it easy for you to get to school.

If you choose a Homestay, you will live with local English speakers and experience an authentic lifestyle. You will live as your hosts live, eat what they eat, and spend time at home together. Many students enjoy the home-cooked meals and the extra feeling of security in a homestay.

Whether you've booked a homestay or residence, you'll always receive a warm, personal welcome. All our hosts are fully briefed on how to make you feel comfortable and well-prepared for your first day of lessons. At our residences, an EC representative will be available at the weekend to help you with anything you need and answer any questions.
