Homestay availability is limited. As a precautionary measure, the ELC website now indicates 'limited availability' for upcoming 2023 monthly programs (January ME, February ME and March ME).  We are projecting our March ME program to fill up quickly, and encourage early applications as we cannot guarantee placements.

UVic Homestay is currently full for the January 2023 ELPI  program, and show as N/A (Not Available) on the ELC website. If interested in January ELPI, you are encouraged to apply to the program, but will need to secure your own accommodation.  Please check-in with us directly to inquire about options or continue to monitor our website as we monitor the availability of local hosts for the spring.  

As always we encourage early application to Homestay accommodation for your best chance of a placement with a local host family for your chosen program. 

We will be continuing to update the ELC Fees and dates webpage as new information and options become available. We look forward to welcoming many more students to UVic Homestay once our capacity for placements with local families has increased.
