Accommodation in Bournemouth for Students

ETC International College offers both homestay and residence accommodation to students. Both are excellent options and have different qualities that will appeal to all learners.

For students looking to fully immerse themselves in conversation and British culture, homestay accommodation is the perfect choice. Students looking for increased independence will find residence accommodation more to their liking.

See our accommodation options below and contact us with any questions you may have. We will be happy to help.

Single room in ETC Residence

ETC Residence

The ETC Residence is located right next door to ETC International College.  We have single, twin, triple and quadruple rooms available and can offer half board.  Students who stay in the ETC Residence benefit from having no travel costs to and from school.


ETC can arrange homestay accommodation for you if you would like to stay with a local family.  Most students who come to study at ETC choose this option, because living with an English family is a great way to practise your spoken English and find out how British people live.

Junior Students

The maximum length a student aged 15 and under may stay with ETC is 26 nights.


If you’re 16 or 17 years old, you are allowed out in the evenings if this has been agreed and signed for by your parents before starting ETC. This is confirmed by your parents signing the parental permission form. 16 and 17 year olds must be home by 10 pm. You must tell your homestay or the residence manager where you are going, with whom and how you may be contacted.

Students who are 16 or 17 whose parents have not signed the parental permission form, or who are under 16 years old, are not allowed to leave the residence or homestay without being accompanied by a designated adult. If you are taking part in activities or if you are in the care of your group leader, please make sure that your homestay has been informed.
