Where you live is key to your happiness and academic success. Whether you prefer the independence of a student residence or the familiarity of homestay, our accommodation options are chosen to offer you the flexibility of choice and quality you deserve.

Stafford House Student Residence

Offering you more space to yourself, our student residence provides the chance to live more independently within Stafford House student community, with like-minded people from all over the world.
Just steps away from neighborhood restaurants and shops, the location of West Roxbury residence provides our students a safe and suburban environment with easy access to our school and downtown Boston.


Boston Homestay

Students opting for a more family-oriented and cultural experience can choose a Homestay in the metro-Boston area. This provides an opportunity for a student to practice their English throughout the evening with their American families, and will help them to avoid speaking their native languages with other students.


American Dormitory

Located In Back Bay; Boston’s most stylish neighborhood. Nestled between quaint shops, cafes and some of Boston’s most celebrated attractions — including Fenway Park, the Boston Public Library and the Charles River Esplanade — International Guest House provides its guests with ample access to a wide variety of activities.

This is Boston’s best area for nightlife.

  • Ana



    The staff and teachers were very helpful and nice. You made my days very easy and fun!

  • Carolina



    There was so much to enjoy about studying here - the teachers and people who work here who are really fun, there are a lot of activities – skiing was my favourite. Our teachers are very good at knowing exactly where we needed to grow, in what areas we might have doubts or specific questions and in getting us to speak in English without realising we were speaking. The location here in Boston is perfect because you can go anywhere as you’re right in the centre of the city.

  • Johanne



    It is a great location, because after class you can just cross the street and go do something in downtown. It’s a great environment for learning, you have the possibility to see native Bostonians living and working, Boston is a very comfortable city. I live in homestay with other students, we all go out to eat together - the students and the family – we travel to school on the subway together and often do our activities after school together.

  • Sofya



    I would recommend this school to my friends. I love everything about the school, I love how the teachers teach, they explain everything and if I don’t understand they will explain it until I understand, all the people are friendly. I love this school so much. I will take TOEFL when I’m finished studying here, I will go to Virginia to study in university. The course has helped me with my future goals; you can’t go to university and not speak English!

    The school is great – I enjoy the classes and we have a nice student lounge and cafe where we can spend time with our friends, have lunch, watch TV! I enjoy exploring the city and find interesting hidden galleries, shops and pubs.
