Accommodation

Although the Leadership Academy Program Tuition does not include accommodation, there are two accommodation options for Leadership Academy students to choose from.

The University's on-campus dormitories are preferred by students who value autonomy and convenience. Staying on campus provides opportunities to make connections with other like-minded students. There are two dorm room choices: single room with shared washrooms or single room with private ensuite washroom. Contact us for information about on-campus housing.

Homestay is a preferred choice for many GLLC students. Living with a local host family offers a unique and enriching opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture, enhance your language skills, and grow personally in a safe and supportive environment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Victoria accommodations fill up quickly, so we encourage you to complete your accommodation bookings at least 6 to 8 weeks before your arrival date.
