International Student Accommodations

It is our goal to provide our international students with the accommodations they need to succeed.  While classroom instruction is a pillar of our teaching methodology, we also strongly vouch for the notion of cultural immersion as being integral in the process of learning a new language. 

Our two accommodation options strive to promote that dichotomy: Homestay and Private Residence. 


At GEOS Languages Plus New York, we believe students are more likely to succeed when they feel comfortable in their immediate surroundings. The majority of our students live with host families that are extremely welcoming, encouraging and accommodating.

Prior to enlisting in our homestay program, each family goes through a rigorous screening process with one of our coordinators and are evaluated in a variety of categories. It is our mission to ensure our students are living in safe areas, in clean homes or apartments with thoughtful and understanding families. 

Living with a New York host family is a once in a lifetime experience, a window into the local culture, and an extension beyond the GEOS classroom walls in which the student experiences day-to-day life with typical Americans. 

The experiences that will help shape your entire stay in New York!

Private Residence

GEOS also offers rooms within an international student residence in the New York area. The residence offers modern amenities such as activity rooms, a fitness center, and Laundry facilities all on-site. Many residences offer complementary activities that allow students to meet one another. Students who choose this option prefer more independence, but still have a high level of security.

No matter which accommodation you choose, GEOS will ensure that your stay will be comfortable and memorable! Check out our residences in New York and find the prices below:
