Accommodation is one of the most important parts of your study abroad experience with us. We personally manage our San Diego accommodation options to ensure a quality, immersion experience. You can choose to live with a caring American homestay or in a residence in downtown San Diego.

If we wouldn’t place our children there, we won’t place our students there either!
