For a successful stay we believe you need a friendly and comfortable environment and it is for this reason that we do our best to ensure it. We carefully select and regularly visit each accommodation. With most of them we’ve been working since the beginning.
Standard, rooms are booked from the Sunday before the first course day until Saturday morning after the last day of lessons. In Boston you can choose to arrive either on Saturday or Sunday prior to the course without extra costs. If you prefer this, please leave a message on the enrolment form. Departure is always on Saturday morning after the last day of lessons. Other extra nights are subject to availability.In Boston we offer the following accommodation types:
The International Guest House is a family-owned and operated student residence located in the exclusive Back Bay area of Boston. It is only a 10-minute walk to the school, stylish shopping on Newbury Street and the beautiful Boston Public Garden.
The residence offers dorm rooms with half board included. Breakfast and dinner are enjoyed in the student cafeteria. Towels and bed linens, television, microwave oven, refrigerator and air-conditioning/heating are all included. Laundry facilities, piano room and TV room are also available.
The dorm rooms are shared with up to 3 other students. A 840 USD deposit is charged upon arrival at the student residence. The deposit will be refunded after room inspection, given there have been no issues or damages done. Please note we cannot guarantee availability for the student residence. In case a place in the student residence is not available we can offer you alternative accommodation in a host family for the corresponding prices published at our website. Make sure to book in advance.
We do offer shared apartments with single and double rooms in a central Boston location. These apartments are a perfect option for students who want independence and a convenient location at a good price. The shared apartments are walking distance to restaurants, museums, and Fenway Park and a 20-minute commute to the school by public transportation. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. The minimum age for the shared apartments is 18 years old. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students booking together.
A 200 USD deposit is charged upon arrival at the shared apartment. The deposit will be refunded after room inspection, given there have been no issues or damages done. If you have reserved the shared apartment and your flight is scheduled to land after 21.30 we have to charge an extra 50 USD.
Please note we cannot guarantee availability for the shared apartments. In case a place in the shared apartment is not available we can offer you alternative accommodation in a host family for the corresponding prices published at our website. Make sure to book in advance.
Learn about American culture and practice your English while staying with one of our American host families during your stay in Boston. All families are located on an average commute of 35-45 minutes (maximum travel time is 60 minutes). Please mind that a host family is not always the typical family, but can also consist of a single woman (with or without children) for example who likes to cook for foreign students.
We believe this is one of the best ways to get to know the culture of our country. Having your own room and keys, you will enjoy this home-style experience yet still have the comforts of independence. But it must be understood that each student must adhere to the rules and costumes of their family. Obviously you share the common areas such as the bathroom and living room with the family. The kitchen can be used only for making coffee, thee or a sandwich.The host family option with half board includes breakfast and dinner while the breakfast option includes breakfast only. Bed sheets are available, but you should bring your own towels. Reservations for double rooms can only be made for students booking together.
