Housing

One of the most important things you will need to take care of before you start your studies in the United States is finding a place to live. In general, the amount you spend for housing should be limited to one-fourth or one-third of the total amount you have planned to spend on living expenses. If the cost is one-half of your budget or more, you may be spending too much. It is especially important to consider location in selecting your housing. If you live farther than walking distance from the campus, it may prove to be inconvenient unless you are close to public transportation or you have a car. While Valencia College does not offer housing, students can choose from a variety of options, including a homestay, hotel, or apartment. Below is information on each of these options:

  • Homestays

  • Hotels*

  • Apartments

Another option for students is to make arrangements for homestays, we have included some company websites below. Their emphasis is on safe, quality, and affordable housing with hosts who are pre-screened, interested in cultural exchange and happy to open their home to a student.

All companies listed are privately owned and are not associated with Valencia College; the contact is provided here only as information about alternative housing possibilities and any arrangements you choose to make are strictly between you (the student) and the housing company.
