Housing (Westchester)

The English Language Institute’s Westchester campus is located in White Plains, a 40-minute train ride from New York City.  It is a safe, quiet neighborhood with easy access to shopping and a short shuttle ride to Pace’s Pleasantville campus.  There are a number of housing options available.

  • Homestays 
  • YMCA
  • Residence Halls
  • Apartments


Staying with a local family is a great way to experience life in New York and practice your English outside of class.  To find a homestay, speak with Homestay NY.  They will help you find a home away from home near the ELI.


Many students stay in the heart of White Plains at the local YMCA. In addition to your room, guest have access to the gym and pool.  It is a short 20-minute walk from the ELI.


If you are staying for a long time at the ELI, it may be possible to stay in one of the residence halls at the Law School. Contact Pace's Housing division for details.


Live like a local. Many students choose to live in an apartment in Westchester. This is a very authentic experience. You can find an apartment or roommate through 4stay.
