Families are always located at approximately 20-35 minutes distance by public transport from the school.  Students will be supervised by monitors and by their host family 24 hours / 7 days a week. There is a curfew: students must be home before 23:00, unless there is a scheduled evening activity.

The residence facilities also include a common room with vending machines for drinks and snacks, a study room, a patio and laundry services available for a small cost. Bed linen and towels are included. The staff will be constantly in the residence, meaning there is excellent supervision during 24 hours a day.

The meal plan is based on full board. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided either at the school or in local cafés and restaurants. Packed lunches are provided at the weekends.
