ELS/Cincinnati has a very well established homestay program with a variety of families to accommodate students' interests and needs. Living with a homestay family allows students to immerse themselves in American culture as well as practice their English skills on a daily basis. Cincinnati's homestay families offer a warm and welcoming environment. The homes are just a bus ride away from the ELS Center. They are also located close to attractions and events throughout Cincinnati. The families' homes are located in safe residential neighborhoods that are easily accessible to campus by either a shuttle or a bus.
Homestay students should notify their host families or ELS of their arrival times so that families will know to be home when they arrive. Students are responsible for their own transportation to ELS. Students can take the city bus at a reduced rate with their UC ID card.
