Students under 18 years old

For students who are under 18 years old, there are two accommodation options. You can choose to stay in Student Castle or we can help you arrange homestay accommodation. If you choose homestay accommodation, you will be living with a family in the house. This option is best suited for students who are not used to living on their own.
