ECLA Header


ECLA's three student houses were spacious, light-filled buildings which were originally constructed as the Egyptian and Cuban Embassies to the former German Democratic Republic. The neo-Bauhaus structures were situated on a leafy property with landscaped gardens and lawn areas. Each house had laundry facilities, a computer lab, a lounge and a kitchen. A study room with space for twenty students, an art room and a room for student projects were also located in the student houses. Students played badminton, soccer and table tennis in the grassy enclosure between the buildings.

The ECLA dining room was just a block from the houses, while administration and teaching facilities were a five-minute walk away. A music room for choir rehearsals and individual practise was also close by.
