The Plus Center is located in the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles. Known as the jewel of San Fernando Valley, Northridge is a leafy, residential suburb with good access to the surrounding countryside and the city center. The main street through the town is located just a 20-minute walk from the campus and has a pharmacy, food stores and restaurants. There are 10 different bus lines from the campus so it is easy to get around by public transport. The campus is about 30-minute drive to Beverly Hills and Hollywood. It is secured by local police service and is so picturesque that it is the site of frequent Hollywood filming.
The Campus is the largest campus in the California State University system and is one of the largest and well-known universities in the Los Angeles region. It is a sprawling campus with sport fields, state of the art buildings, gardens, and a housing village.
Our hosts have been chosen for their interest in welcoming young people from around the world. They are picked because of the care and comfort they can offer to students who may be travelling overseas for the first time. Choosing to stay in home stay is the right option for those who want to experience real life living in that country: it will give a student the opportunity to use English in a real environment and integrate with the family. Home stay is often the first choice for slightly older students.
