Here at SWEC we provide a range of accommodation options so there’s something for everyone to choose from: host families, college boarding, hotel, B&B or self catering.

Host families

We have an extensive network of over 60 host families who all provide a friendly and supportive atmosphere where students can practice English in a real-life situation.

B & B

If you’d like more freedom but don’t want the hassle of making breakfast then a Bed and Breakfast is the perfect option.


Why not make your stay feel like a luxury holiday in one of the 3 or 4 star hotels we can arrange? When you’re not studying or taking part in activities you can be relaxing and catching up on sleep hassle free.

Self Catering

If you miss the comfort of home cooking or just want the freedom to eat out in the huge range of restaurants, then a self-catering option is a great choice.

Boarding school

If a host family isn’t for you why not try our boarding options? We provide residential accommodation in Saffron Walden or St Mark’s College in the picturesque Audley End Village.
