Finding Accommodation Whilst Studying at our English Language Schools

August 11, 2011 by St Giles

Finding suitable accommodation whilst you are studying can be a hard task. Hotels can be very expensive and short term rental agreements are often hard to come by. At St Giles International, we have collected a variety of recommended accommodation options to make things easier for you. We have strong links with local hotels who provide us with discounted rates and we also have student residences as well as homestays available. There are advantages to each of these accommodation choices.

Homestay Accommodation

Homestay is a very popular option. It is great for learning English outside the classroom as you will be staying with an English speaking host family. It is also the most affordable option.

Student Residences

Student residences are a popular choice with many of our students because they offer you some additional independence. They are normally close to our schools and you will be staying in the same building as many other students, who you can make friends with.


There are a number of hotels available at each our schools. The main advantage of a hotel is often the location – they are in popular destinations, close to our schools. If you choose to stay in a hotel, you have the choice of economy hotels with shared bathroom facilities, or mid-range and 3-4 star hotels which have en-suite bathrooms.
