Students may choose from the following housing options: Home stay, Residencies, and Shared apartments. We always try to provide first student housing choice, but we cannot guarantee it. It is why we recommend students to apply in advance so they have better chances to obtain their preferred option.
Staying with a host family is an ideal way to enrich student's experience and to reinforce the knowledge gained during the program. We select our families carefully and know them for years. All of them have extensive experience accommodating foreign students. Upon arrival students receive a key of the house so they may come and go as they please. Student will be able to receive telephone calls. Three daily meals are provided and one laundry load per week.
This is an off-campus student's residence. ALA offers its own Residence with shared rooms and bathrooms. Each room has its own TV and computer. Rooms are WI-FI and have A/C. There are also common areas. We also offer laundry services, and full board in a restaurant nearby.
These apartments are shared by local and/or international students. They mostly have double bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, washing machine and refrigerator, and shared bathrooms. Students must respect building community rules and maintain the apartment in decent conditions. The price of accommodation includes the cost of utilities (electricity, gas, water) within reasonable expending, and a weekly cleaning of the communal areas. Meals are not included.
