Typically, our students make arrangements for housing on their own. On-campus housing is limited, so our students usually live off-campus. In summer, on-campus housing may be available. You can find out by contacting us. Please plan to arrive in time to find housing and settle in before classes begin.
Student can choose to use a housing placement agency. One of these agencies, Just Like Home is a full-service housing placement service located in the Washington, DC area including Maryland. Just Like Home offers the following housing options:
Homestay - Living in a homestay is the fastest way to accomplish your goal of improving your English. Homestay also provides the unique opportunity to learn about the American culture while living as a member of an American family. Three meal plan options are available.
Roommate/Shared Housing - Participants are matched based upon common interests and personal requirements.
Apartment - Short-term furnished apartment rental is an independent option which may require signing a lease and providing a security deposit.

Accommodations for closed groups are generally available during the summer (June through August) in apartment suites on or near campus. Numerous dining services are available, both on campus and off campus. Sponsors requesting reservations for groups are encouraged to contact MEI at least six months in advance of projected program dates.
Public transportation to the school includes Metrobus, Metrorail and MARC commuter rail. The school's Shuttle Bus service is fare-free and provides on-campus transportation as well as access to rail stations and near-by apartment complexes.
