Host family
Living with a host family is a great way of immersing yourself in the Australian way of life during your stay in Sydney. You will stay in a single room with half board provided and will be around 30 to 60 minutes away from the school.

Student House Studyhouse (minimum stay: 2 weeks)
The ELC language school proposes staying in one of its student houses, which are modern and newly renovated. They have an excellent location, as they are all close to each other and only a 10 minutes' walk away from the school, just on the opposite side of Darling Harbour, in the centre of Sydney. You will stay in a single, double or triple room, and will share the modern facilities with your housemates, including the equipped kitchen, the two bathrooms, a lounge with a flat-screen TV and computer, the WiFi connection available throughout the building and you will have a magnetic card for accessing the residence.
Availability is limited and therefore, it is recommended to book in advance.

Residence ELC (minimum stay: 10 weeks)
The very comfortable apartments offered to international students are located in a modern building in the centre of Sydney, 10 minutes’ walk from the language school building. Close to public transport, shops and restaurants, you will be staying in a single room in an apartment that you will share with 5 other students. The apartments are air-conditioned and include a large well-equipped kitchen. The 24h/24 reception desk, large social area, outdoor BBQ area, games area and TV lounge will allow you to get to know the other tenants quickly. Wi-Fi access is available in the common areas. There is a weekly housekeeping service and you will be able to use the coin-operated laundry facilities. The building also includes a bike storage room.

Student House Link2 (minimum 2 weeks)
If you prefer to be independent while staying in contact with the other participants, this option is ideal: you will stay in one of these modern houses, a 10-minute walk from the school, in the heart of Sydney. In a single bedroom, you will enjoy the comfort of air-conditioning and free Wi-Fi; if you travel with a person of the same sex, you can book a twin room together. On site, you will find bed linen and towels, a shared kitchen to cook your meals and a student lounge to watch TV and have a good time with your flatmates from around the world.
