Our New Student Residence – ‘The Yellow House’

We are pleased to present our newly renovated and refubished student residence - 'The Yellow House' - situated in the historic BoKaap.

The New Student Residence
Our journey as an English language school over the past years has grown in leaps and bounds.  Most recently, the success of the UCT English language Centre has resulted in our student residence being fully booked out for months to come – with many students who are currently with us putting their name down on a waiting list in case someone decides to spontaneously return home for an extended holiday or for work.

Why is living in a student residence important? 

We have come to understand that the ability to stay in the student residence greatly improves our students’ overall experience of their time in Cape Town and at ELC because they form strong relationships with one another and are able to ensure they are part of a vibrant and active social life, which all starts in a communal kitchen.

This has prompted us to explore our options and open a new student residence for our students.

We are pleased to present ‘The Yellow House’ which is now open and accepting new students.
