Housing at UMKC

The Applied Language Institute offers attractive housing options while you study.

Check out the different options below:


Homestay Program

The ALI offers a home-stay program to ALI students. Students live with an American host. Many students choose this option to feel at home and learn more about American culture.

  • Stay with an US host who has been pre-screened by the ALI.
  • Improve your English outside the classroom.
  • Live the culture in a family environment.
  • Homes are close to campus, often just a short bus ride away.

  • Stay in a hall with other US and international students.
  • Private or shared rooms and bathrooms.
  • A Meal Plan is required for all students staying in the dorms.
  • Cost varies depending on the room and meal plan.
