Host family

You’ll be able to practise your English as you enjoy the evening meal with your host family, as half board is included, and join in with family life! Bed linen and towels are included, along with a laundry service once a week. All homestays are located 45-60 minutes away from the school, and on your first day, your host family will help you plan your trip to school. Enjoy your stay in the USA with a personal touch!

San Francisco Student Residence (ages 18 and over)
Just a 10-minute walk away from Kaplan San Francisco, these comfortable residences are found right in downtown San Francisco, with many famous landmarks nearby to explore in your downtime. Rooms are either single or twin (both with en-suite bathroom), fitted with a TV, desk, storage space; bed linen and towels are provided. The fully equipped kitchen is shared with other students in the residence, so there’s lots of opportunity to meet new people in the communal spaces. Rooms are cleaned once a week, and coin-operated laundry facilities are available on site.

San Francisco isn’t one of the most famous cities in the USA for nothing! Explore an iconic cultural hub as you learn English in San Francisco, with surprises around every corner. Thanks to California’s amazing climate, there are many events and concerts held year-round, and the streets buzz with life at night.
