Accommodation options
Homestay
Live as part of an English-speaking household. You’ll have your own bedroom, and eat breakfast and evening meals with your hosts.
It’s a great chance to meet native San Franciscans and share their way of life. Living with English-speakers also means that you will never stop learning and improving your fluency.
In San Francisco, our Homestay households are all within 60 minutes’ travel by public transport from the school. The residential areas around Embassy San Francisco are mostly 1930-40s era homes of Spanish Colonial and art-deco styles. There are flats and turn-of-the-last-century Victorian homes as well.
Student residences
For students who would like more independence.
In San Francisco, our student residences take the form of a selection of long-stay hotels, some with single and shared study bedrooms, some offering apartments. Bathrooms and toilets are shared in the former, private in the latter. In all cases there is a manager on duty at the residences.
You will have access to public telephones and the internet; there are also shared common room areas.
Guest room bed and breakfast: Rooms in private homes in the local San Francisco area. A continental-style, self-service breakfast is provided each day. This is a slightly less personal option than Homestay, because the host, while available for initial guidance and orientation, will not necessarily socialise with you. Thus, it’s a good option for those who would like a degree of privacy, and also suits couples.
