Housing Information

Housing options can range from living with American families (homestays) to living in apartments. Though El Camino College does not provide room and board for students, we can offer suggestions of reputable housing and homestay companies. 


The homestay option will provide students with many opportunities to speak English while learning about American culture and lifestyle
