Overview

In the 1960's, Harlaxton Manor was the British study abroad facility for Stanford University. Purchased by University of Evansville, Indiana, in 1971, it has hosted their study abroad program for more than 40 years, now known as Harlaxton College.  Evansville students will be be in residence while CSU students are there.

For summer 2018, all participants begin each course online on May 7, completing two weeks of coursework prior to arriving at Harlaxton College in England on May 20 (departing USA on May 19).  Participants purchase their own flights, but a coordinated arrival time will be communicated in February.  Online study is followed by three weeks of face-to-face instruction at Harlaxton College.  Participants will depart Harlaxton on June 10 to return home or commence independent travel.

Location

Harlaxton College is situated within beautiful Harlaxton Manor—a 19th Century Grade 1 listed building located about 5 minutes from the town of Grantham.  Harlaxton Manor has been featured in several films.  It hosts weddings and other celebrations plus offers an special environment for students to live and learn.

CSU students have the option of using their BritRail pass to join University of Evansville students on their weekend travels. London is one hour by train from Grantham. Trains run almost every hour from Grantham to and from London, so students often leave Harlaxton after class to spend the afternoon/evening in London.  Similarly, Edinburgh, Cambridge, York, and other destinations are readily visited by train.


Housing and Meals

Accommodation and most meals are provided by Harlaxton College within Harlaxton Manor.
