Living Options for International Students
At GEOS Languages Plus Calgary, we have two living options for international students: Homestay and Private Residence.
Our Homestay Program is an excellent accommodation option for students looking to experience Calgary while taking English courses. Staying with a host family gives students the opportunity to have a richer cultural experience and practice new English skills on a daily basis and in real-life situations.
During the registration process, students can provide preferences for their accommodation, which we will do our best to adhere to. GEOS Calgary is conveniently located downtown within walking distance of bus and light rail stations. This makes it easy for students to travel to and from their accommodations.
A GEOS staff member visits each of our host families with students’ interests in mind. All families have also had a police background check. Our aim is to provide our students with a secure, educational and vibrant environment. Our host families live in safe, comfortable neighborhoods in Calgary and in surrounding suburbs.
After selecting the right English courses that suit your language needs, have a look at our Homestay pricing options.
At this time, please contact us directly for more information on our private residence options.
