Homestay and Private Home Accommodation

One of the best ways to learn more about the people of England is to choose homestay/private home accommodation.

A homestay is a home that can accept up to 4 guests. The hosts treat students as full members of the household, eating together and sharing the common living areas. In homestays you can expect to live with students of different nationalities (if you have not requested otherwise). Family life is informal, and the people are welcoming, friendly and talkative, so you will have plenty of opportunities to practise your English.

Private home accommodation is accommodation in a private home for adult students (over 16 students) that can accept more than four students. There may be less direct contact with the host(s) as a consequence. Private home accommodation is not suitable for under-16s. In private homes you can expect to meet a number of other students of different nationalities.

CES can offer our students in Leeds a large selection of homestay/private home accommodation. Homestay/private home accommodation includes breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner 7 days a week. Average travel time from homestays/private home and to the school is 30-45 minutes by public transport.

En-suite bedrooms are very limited and are subject to availability.

Single room homestay accommodation is £225 per week in 2024.

Shared room homestay accommodation is £200 per week in 2024

NB. There is a summer supplement of £35 per week in July and August for both single and shard rooms options.

Accommodation placement fee is £75 per person in 2024

We can offer special diets also, subject to availability and a £35 a week surcharge, for example, kosher, halal, coeliac, gluten free, lactose free and vegetarian.

Homestay/private home accommodation is charged on a 7 nightly basis.

Having chosen a homestay or private home suitable for you, details will be sent to the hosts, and we would suggest you make contact with them to confirm your arrival time. You will have a light breakfast and evening meal every day.
