Adults Host Family Accommodation

Most of the Globe students choose to stay with a British host family during their time with us. It is a fantastic way to meet new people, learn about the local way of life, explore the traditions, as well as practice your English. We offer host family accommodation to both junior and adult students.

Host families are carefully selected by the Globe Accommodation Officer and offer students the opportunity to learn more about the local culture in a comfortable setting while studying English in Exeter. These homes are usually between 15 - 30 minutes away from the school by foot. In the rare event that we have to place a student further away, we will provide a free bus pass. Host families will offer a variety of meals and will of course cater to different tastes. If you have any allergies, preferences or diet restrictions (because of religion or health reasons), please let us know in advance as we will use this information when selecting your host family. 

Our families follow the English UK Code of Practice in accordance with the British Council and British Tourist Authority recommendations. Families provide a comfortable heated bedroom and offer breakfast, packed lunch and evening meal. They will do some light laundry on a weekly basis, if required. Adult students are always placed in a single room, unless they request to share.

We select families for the comfort of their homes, their kindness and the quality of their welcome. Many of our families are personally known to our staff and have been working with us for many years, giving them a wealth of experience catering for international students.

Our week runs from Sunday to Sunday so we prefer our students to arrive and depart on those days. Please contact us on  to enquire for other arrival days.
