The most famous universities and exclusive public schools

Among the many things that makes MLA stand out is the carefully curated collection of accommodations you will find at all of our centres. Ranging from picturesque college campuses with on-site residential accommodations to esclusive boarding schools, we offer the perfect accommodation for your language course.

College and Campus

For those who love sharing group experiences and want to live like a true foreign student.
College life offers a fun environment, promoting group life, and encouraging communication with students from other countries. Colleges are selected from the most famous universities and exclusive ‘boarding schools’ in the country. Facilities are, for the most part, surrounded by greenery and located in residential areas. Activities take place on campus, allowing maximum security and comfort.

University Residence

A university residence is particularly suitable for students who love big cities and want
to live an urban life. The main difference between colleges and university residences it that classrooms, sports facilities and the canteen are usually placed outside the complex. This allows students to regularly leave the main building to take advantage of all the activities offered in our programme, making the summer experience more independent.


At select centres, students will have the chance to live in an English-speaking host family, truly putting their English-speaking skills to use, and learning and living their culture and lifestyle. Host families are selected with great care and rigorous standards. Families are located either close to the college, or just a short bus or tube ride away. Students will have to pay their own fares.

The accommodation is provided in a twin room with full board (meals provided at the college or in the home). Host family details will be sent a few days before the departure date. Sometimes host families can consist of one or two family members who will, of course, meet the requirements requested of hosting students in a comfortable confident manner. In the event that the family does not perfectly match the required standards for evident reasons, we will immediately provide a suitable replacement.

Homestay Accommodation

Homestays give you the chance to have a full immersion in the local culture.
Families are carefully selected by the schools abroad, ensuring their requirements of morality and suitability to host foreign students. Some are located near the school, others in residential areas about 30/50 minutes away by public transport. Families may consist of just one person and can accommodate more students. Host family details are provided before departure.


They can be considered as a valid alternative to colleges or university residences. In some countries, such as Italy, there are no facilities such as colleges, campuses or university residences. For the accommodation, therefore, three- or four- star hotels are used. The facilities we choose are particularly suitable for the needs of the student on a study holiday.

Our Promise

We have heard from our students and agents that accommodations are among the most important items that impact their course satisfaction. We want to ensure that you see is what you get! MLA has taken a proactive approach to give our guests all the tools to see and experience the accommodations you choose.

Photo Galleries

Our staff hand selects every accommodation prior to publishing them. We go through great lengths to provide you with high resolution, first-person point of view, color photography that can be viewed and downloaded. These pictures are important for our agents to use in their marketing as well as the students to see exactly what they will receive when they arrive at an MLA centre.

3-D Floor Plans

Many of our MLA centres have custom, three-dimensional floor plans which can be viewed in order to see the configuration of the accommodations. These cutting-edge tools are the perfect way to see the bathroom ratios, furniture, and other in-room amenities you will find inside your MLA centre room.

Virtual Tours

Many of our MLA centres have professional virtual tours that can be viewed online, using virtual glasses, or on your tablet. Our virtual tours will take you inside the student accommodations, bathrooms, and common rooms; as well as dining halls, sports facilities, classrooms, and other spaces utilized by MLA.
