Southampton Language College works directly with local residents to provide 2 main types of accommodation:
For most students coming from abroad to study with us, we recommend full-board accommodation. This is where a local Southampton family provides you with your own room, use of facilities, a good breakfast and evening meal, as well the natural speaking practice you will receive in English from living with a native speaker family. We have a number of different homestay families available. Full-board accommodation costs £125 per week* and this is payable in advance.
A less expensive option is Private Home accommodation. This is self-catering and there may be less contact with the accommodation provider. This costs £85 per week* and is payable in advance.
All Homestay and Private Home accommodation providers are inspected by Southampton Language College to high standards to ensure that they can provide the required service before we send any student to them. You are, of course, invited to comment at any time on the suitability of your homestay accommodation and host family.
For more information on the minimum standards that the host family is obliged to provide, please contact us.
* This figure includes a £5 administration charge per week.
