Lodging is based on half board; breakfast and dinner are included. Most host families live at 35 – 55 minutes from the school, by public transport.

Minimum age: 16 years

You will stay in a double room that will be shared with another student of the same gender. Every bedroom has it’s own private bathroom. There is a common dining area and you can decide to choose halfboard. If you don’t book meals, you can use the communal kitchen. There also are shared lounge areas with games and TV’s.

The residence is available from January – half May and from September until the end of December. In summer months, you can stay in the summer residence. 

Minimum age: 17 years

Summer residence

During the summer months, from half-May, you can stay in the summer residence right on campus! The school building is just a few minutes away.
