At the ELI, housing is considered one of the most important parts of the experience of students in Academic Transitions (AT).

This is because housing not only helps students to practice their English-language skills outside of the classroom, but it is also an amazing cultural experience!

All students in AT and in Pre-AT are required to live in one of the following housing options:

  • Homestay (living with American hosts)
  • ELI Global Community at The Waverly

The housing type that is available to students may depend on their level in the program and the time of year when they start their AT program. Please see below for more information.


AT students who do not live in ELI-approved housing may lose their conditional admission to the University.

In the Global Community at The Waverly, ELI and UD students can live four students to an apartment. Each student has their own bedroom and bathroom. Students share common areas in the apartment and socialize with other community members in the beautiful, modern  shared spaces.

Live with American hosts!

Students in AT or Pre-AT may live in homestays with Americans. This is a wonderful way to learn about American culture and families, as students and their hosts can share meals and participate in activities and outings together.

Through these interactions, students and their hosts become like a family, truly caring for each other and building friendships that last a lifetime.
