At Chaucer College Kingsgate we offer on-site residential accommodation for up to 44 students in single, double or triple bedrooms, with sensational sea views to the rear of the building.
Each bedroom is equipped with its own desk, washbasin and comfortable single bed(s). All linen and towels are provided to residents. Our housekeeping team ensure that the College and its accommodation rooms and facilities are always clean, maintaining our high standards and your expectations.
All bed linen and towels are changed fortnightly and residents will be notified of this day on arrival. Residents are also welcome to use our on-site laundry facilities at a small cost of Â£3 per wash.
As well as accommodation in the College, we have an excellent rapport with the local community and are lucky enough to have a high number of long-standing host families.
All students accommodated in Homestay will be transported to and from the College each day, by our own private minibuses and Chaucer College Kingsgate drivers.
Homestay is often a popular choice amongst European and International students. It gives them a chance to experience life with a British family, learning a little more about British culture, while developing their language and knowledge in a comfortable and informal setting.
If you would prefer to stay with one of our host families, you will still participate in all of our organised activities. Families offer accommodation and meals to either one or two students in each household, depending on requirements. Homestay is seen by many of our own students as the most important and enjoyable aspect of their course.
All meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, are freshly prepared and cooked by our in-house catering team and served in our large dining hall. All dietary requirements can be catered for and residents can choose from a range of dishes from an international menu. During the summer, we often provide BBQs to residents on our large lawn area, which is always popular amongst our residents.
