Students attending IIFA English Learning Center have multiple options when choosing their housing accommodations.

Find Housing Online

Students may decide to look for their own housing online. Since looking for housing options as an international student can be time-consuming, and difficult, we strongly recommend that students get assistance in their search from a real estate agent who understands the needs of international students.
