Staying in a new city like St. Petersburg can be both exciting and challenging for students, and finding well-matched accommodations can make all the difference to a positive and engaging Russian language programme. At Liden & Denz, we work closely with our clients to ensure that all students are able to find accommodations that align closely with their interests, needs, and preferences by connecting our students with dedicated accommodation officers. The wide variety of accommodation types we provide to students reflects the diverse goals and lifestyles of our student community. However, all of our accommodations have a few things in common. First, they are all within an easy commute from the St. Petersburg campus. Secondly, all of our accommodations have been inspected by Liden & Denz. Third, special dietary requirements can be accommodated for no charge, if mentioned upon booking. As a result, students can feel assured in their choice to book accommodations through Liden & Denz. Students are also welcome to find accommodations independently, although they will not be eligible for Liden & Denz’s complimentary arrival transfers.
Staying with a host family is an unforgettable experience for many Liden & Denz students, as it adds not only to the personal comfort of their time in St. Petersburg, but also contributes to the process of learning Russian. All home-stays involve families hand-selected by Liden & Denz – perhaps a married couple with children, but also potentially a single person, elderly couple, etc. – based on their ability to connect with students and contribute positively to their stay in Russia. We look for families that are sociable and welcoming, and who will be enthusiastic about patiently speaking Russian with students and helping them with any problems they may face while staying in St. Petersburg. There are a range of home-stay types available: students may choose to stay in a single room or a double room with another student, and may choose a bed and breakfast or half-board (breakfast and dinner) meal option. Students will also share common spaces with their host families, including the bathroom and the kitchen. Students should note that:
Liden & Denz St. Petersburg is a close-knit community, and for many students the opportunity to extend this community into their living arrangements is very appealing. Our shared flats are the perfect option for these students, allowing classmates to socialise and learn with each other even outside the classroom.

In fact, most of our flats are within walking distance of the Liden & Denz St. Petersburg campus, and all are very close the metro lines.
