Current Students

The ELI has a special Current Student Website that has all the information that you will need in order to manage your student life at the ELI.

Applying for housing is easy. We offer several great housing options, including:

  • An International Living/Learning Community (where ELI students can live with American university students!)
  • Homestay (living with an American family)
  • Apartments of several formats (single apartments, shared apartments, and family units)


To reserve housing, please follow these steps:

Complete the housing application

You will receive the housing application via email about one month before you are due to start at the ELI. The email will include a link unique to you.

Wait to receive your housing confirmation

Housing confirmations will be sent to you by email approximately 2 weeks before the beginning of your session. Depending on your housing selection, you may receive a confirmation earlier.

We are happy to help you with your housing reservations.

When can I move in?

Move in day is typically the first day of ELI Orientation. Please make your travel plans with this in mind.

We recommend that you do not arrive to Delaware earlier than 2 days before ELI orientation. If you arrive to Newark early, we cannot guarantee that you can move in early.

If you are arriving early and want to move in early, you must contact with your name, student ID, and housing reservation form. We will inform you if it is possible for you to move in early and what the early move in fee will be.
