Housing

IELP students have several choices of where to live while studying English at UAlbany.

  • On Campus – Live in a dormitory on campus with other students.
  • Off Campus – Live in an apartment off campus.
  • Homestays – Live with an American family off campus.

Please note that IELP does not make housing arrangements. We offer this contact information and basic advice about finding housing. Students should make their own arrangements and apply for housing well in advance of their arrival date.
