Homestay

Homestay

Homestay accommodation is where you live with a local family based in Canterbury. Homestay offers you the opportunity to practise your English and experience British culture, and is a useful option for short stays. Minimum stays are two weeks.

Every Homestay is different and so an allocation does not necessarily mean you will be staying with a conventional family of two parents with children. The family unit may include single parents or people living alone.

In your accommodation you will be given your own private study bedroom, which will contain:

  • A comfortable bed
  • Storage space for your clothes and personal belongings.

There are different bathroom arrangements; from en-suite to sharing with the family or other guests. The majority of homes are within walking distance of the city centre. Due to demand at busy times, we may also offer places within a short bus journey to the main campus.

If you have specific requirements such as sharing preferences, please include this when you apply, and we will try to accommodate these if possible.

Available to*

  • International students on short-term courses based on Canterbury Campus

* Disclaimer: Offered subject to availability and in accordance with the Accommodation Eligibility Policy
