Accommodation Options

We understand how important it is for you to be happy where you are living while you are studying with us.  We will do everything we can to give you the best option to suit your needs and to help and support you with your living arrangements.

Homestay Families

One of the best ways to help improve your English and also give you a better understanding of British life and culture is to stay with one of our carefully-selected Homestay Families. Homestay accommodation is on a half-board basis (breakfast and dinner during the week, all meals at weekends). Students normally arrive at their homestay accommodation on Sunday and leave on Saturday.

At LSI, we are able to recruit the best host families, all within easy walking distance of school. This is helped by the fact that, in this beautiful and historic city of 200,000 people, there are very few other language schools.

For information and advice about living with one of our host families please click here.

We also offer private home accommodation (more than 4 students living in the home).  All of the facilities offered are the same as with a homestay family but there may be less direct contact with the host(s).  

Self-catering student houses

In addition to our homestay families, LSI Portsmouth is also able to offer more independent accommodation in our self-catering student houses, St Michael's Road and Victoria Road North. Both of the houses are exclusively for LSI students only, have live-in House Managers to look after the students and keep things organised and are within easy walking distance of school (one is just around the corner!). Please contact the school in advance of booking to confirm availability as these options are very popular with our students, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

St Michael's Road is LSI's brand new self-catering house.  It has 12 fully-furnished rooms - 10 with private showers and wash basins and 2 with full en suite facilities.  There is a large kitchen/dining room with a sofa and flatscreen TV.  It also has free WiFi for you to use and is only a 1-minute walk from school!

Victoria Road North has 8 bedrooms, all with private bathrooms and flatscreen TVs.  It is fully furnished and has WiFi throughout.  There is a large kitchen-diner on the ground floor and a small garden at the back.  Victoria Road North is just 15 minutes' walking distance from the school, in a residential area near to the city centre, shops and bars.
