Having the right accommodation is a crucial part of your French language stay. Since everybody has different requirements for accommodation, different habits and different ways of living, we at ILA French language school are pleased to offer you a wide choice of accommodation options for all kind of needs.
We have our own in-house accommodation department at our French language school. This ensures accommodation at a very high standard. From the time you first enquire with us, we are here to help you to make the best choice for your needs and will take care of booking your accommodation. During your French language stay we will be here to help you with any questions you might have.
All accommodation options our French language school offers are continuously checked for their performances and quality. This is done by regular re-inspections as well as by feedbacks from all former students via our quality questionnaires at the end of each stay.
We also respect the IALC accommodation code.
In order to help you choosing the right accommodation type, we will give you some guidelines underneath.
A host family is not a hotel with hotel services. Staying with host families requires respect from both sides since it means sharing part of a private life. You will have your own room, own key and you are independent up to a certain extend, but you will have to adapt yourself to e.g. meal times of the family and the rules of the home. Showing interest in your hosts and being open minded towards them will help you to integrate quickly.
You will benefit for your French language and also have an interesting insight into French family life as well as French culture.
We place great importance on reserving the best matching family for you. All families are carefully selected and we have the reputation for providing excellent host families.
The student residences are very popular with students, who like independency and meeting other students from all around the world. You have your own room including private bathroom and own equipped kitchen (or access to an equipped common kitchen). You prepare your meals yourself or together with other students. You can also enjoy many reasonable priced restaurants and student bars nearby. You will have to respect the rules of the residences, but you are completely independent. Most students staying at the student residence are between 18 and 30 years old, but also some more mature students young at mind chose this option. The atmosphere is lively. You are in walking distance to school.
If you prefer the idea of mixing with other students from all over the world, going out a lot and having independency rather than integrating the household of a local family, this option should be considered.
Like the Student Residences, the rooms at the Montpellier University campus are very popular for our younger students, who want to enjoy independency and meet other students from around the world. More basic and smaller than the rooms at the Student Residences, this is the most economic accommodation, but only available in July and August and only for students 18 years and above.
Based at the University, you have a private room with private bathroom. You can eat at the University restaurants since no kitchen is available. You will have to respect the rules of the residence, but you are completely independent. Most students staying on the University Campus are aged between 18 and 30. The atmosphere is lively. Distance wise, you are in 10 - 15 minutes from school by public transport.
The aparthotels are more upmarket than the student residences and offer higher quality of accommodation and services. The aparthotels also provide independent studios with private bathrooms and private kitchens. This type of residence suits the more discerned student looking for independent accommodation.
We can book hotels of all categories and price levels. Due to the fact that hotels are relatively expensive compared with the other accommodation offered we only recommend hotels for shorter stays.
For long term student we can book (according to availability) rooms in a flat share with access to a kitchen and bathroom or also furnished, independent apartments. These option are only available for long term students, minimum 3 months for a flat share, minimum 4 months for an independent apartment.
