ELS NY-Riverdale has an extensive, popular, and safe Homestay Program. Students enjoy a wide variety of homestay options. Commute times may be 30-40 minutes by public transportation, and not all homestays are within walking distance.
14 meals per week. Breakfast and dinner are included during the weekdays. Two meals a day are included on weekends.
Student Residence (On Campus)
Shared dorm rooms are located in Mastronardi Hall, which is conveniently located just a few minutes walk from the ELS Center. ELS students are housed in the same dormitory as CMSV students, so there are ample opportunities to socialize with College students. This option includes meal credits which can be used at the two on-campus cafeterias.
About Mastronardi Hall:

Those students who stay in the dormitory need to submit an MMR immunization record. While it is preferable that students get their immunizations done in their home country, MMRs can be done at a clinic near campus.
Students receive $467 in meal credits per session and $10 to the campus bookstore or local eatery (both included in the dormitory price).
