Elephant House

*PLEASE NOTE* BLC is now a virtual school so all of our courses will take place online until further notice, and for this period of time we will not be taking bookings for accommodation.

Contact us for further information about summer and beyond or online options in the meantime.

Just 15 minutes’ walk from BLC, the Elephant House residence is ideal if you want independence at the same time as being part of a BLC community, with the chance to meet people and practise English at home. The strict English language-only policy in this BLC community will help you learn English as you make friends.

At Elephant House we can offer single or twin rooms with double beds and shared bathrooms, or single rooms with private bathrooms. The twin rooms are single sex and can be booked on an individual basis.
