Location


Accommodation

  • RENTING AN APARTMENT OR ROOM
    Students in the fall and spring semesters of ELTA Intensive must find housing off-campus. As American University is conveniently connected by both the Metro Red line and Metro busses and has many parking facilities, it is possible to commute to campus from almost anywhere in the Washington metro area. Finding convenient and high-quality housing is even easier thanks to the many online resources for students such as housing guides, newsletters, webinars, online search engines and individual consultation appointments. Go to AU's Office of Housing and Dining Programs to see the services they offer.

    HOMESTAYS
    Instead of renting an apartment or room on their own, students can also choose to live in a homestay. Living with an American family is a great way for students to practice their English in an informal setting and learn about American culture. With a host family students have the opportunity to see Washington D.C. from the perspective of a local resident and make friends in the process. The English Language Training Academy does not arrange, inspect or recommend any specific homestays, but interested students should contact local homestay companies that place students into short-term housing in the Washington D.C. area.

    On-campus housing is only available to ELTA students during the summer semester. Please submit the following if you would like to live on campus while studying in the intensive program:

    Housing Application
    Housing deposit
    Students will then be contacted by the office of Housing and Dining.
