The ELI offers several housing options to students. Students can live with American families, in apartments, or in our Global Community. The housing options available to students depend on their program (because some programs have specific housing requirements). The ELI even offers housing to students who are traveling with their family!
Health and Medical Information
There are several health-related things that new students must know before they begin their program at the ELI. All ELI students are required to prepare medical documents before they come to Delaware. They are also required to get certain vaccines (i.e., immunizations) and medical tests, and they must purchase health insurance.
