Happy Homes for Students & Hosts

Discover the many rewards associated with hosting an international student! As a homestay host, your role is to welcome a student into your family, heart, and home. By sharing experiences and providing companionship and guidance, you can make a positive difference in the life of a student.

While hosts do receive monetary compensation, most of our hosts choose to participate in the worldly connections and lifelong friendships that they develop. Please note that you do not need to own a home to participate in our program; all you need is a nice, clean, and comfortable place that your student can call home.

Beauty in Diversity

Our client-students come from an impressive and exciting variety of countries to study at local universities, schools, and institutions. Some are here to learn English, some to pursue a degree, and others to attend a trade or vocational school. Here at Global Student Services, USA, Inc., we're committed to offering the same level of diversity in our hosts that we see in our network of students. All types of households are welcomed and encouraged to apply, including:

  • Single People
  • Single Parents
  • Families
  • Working Professionals
  • Retired People
