I have been in Brighton for about a year and I chose to stay at the EC Brighton residence because I wanted to be more independent than staying in a host family. If you choose to stay in any of the EC Brighton residences, you will be near the school, close to supermarkets, shops and even the Brighton Pier within walking distance!
If you choose to stay in a residence, you will have fun and will make new friends who actually study at EC. I have met lots of people from different countries and different cultures. If it is intriguing and exciting, you can learn many things about them. At the residence you can speak with your housemates, you can cook together and hang out in your free time. If you are an independent person who wants to learn and have fun, this type of accommodation is exactly for you!
