Housing Options
We will work with you to provide on-campus housing. Lewis University occupies more than 400 acres with 12 residence halls and 1300 residential students. With many dining options, fitness center and library, we hope to provide you with a great residential experience. If we do not have rooms on campus available, there are many options in the local community and the surrounding region that have a wide range of housing options.

ELS Homestay Options
International students also have the option to live with an American host family. ELS hosts offer students many different types of living environments, including with families, retirees, singles, single parents, and families with children. Homes are screened to ensure safety and quality. All host families provide a private bedroom and two meals a day. Homes are located less than 30 minutes from campus.

For more information, and to apply to an ELS host family, please contact Stephanie Walter at chicagolandhomestay@gmail.com or the Lewis University ELS Center at ROM@els.edu
