About Our Hosts

Our hosts are an integral part of a homestay for foreign students, as they’re responsible for opening up their home, welcoming a student, and providing the highest form of hospitality throughout the entire academic homestay.

Your host family will guide you through your U.S. journey and help you with any questions, concerns, or issues that arise.  

  • 24/7 support
  • Personalized student/family matches
  • Vetted selection of households
  • Lifelong friendship opportunities
  • Extra assistance transitioning to American student life
  • Help navigating the local community 

Student Safety and Well-Being is our First Priority

We don’t take an international homestay program lightly, especially when it comes to the safety and security of our students. We only choose host families who have undergone a series of national criminal background checks, interviews, at-home inspections, orientations, and trainings. On top of intensive procedures for households, we’re also CSIET-approved, meaning StudentRoomStay is audited each year to assure each student is safe and well taken care of during their entire academic homestay.

Every student has access to 24/7 support from trained StudentRoomStay staff, as well as monthly check-ins to address additional concerns or issues. Each StudentRoomStay school offers first-rate international student programs, teachers, and counselors to assist students and their progress in American schooling, providing many resources for stability and overall health.
