Homestay

Live with an American family and share American customs and culture.

International students enjoy a dinner with their host family.

Homestays offer you a home away from home and a great place to practice your English skills. Students are provided a fully furnished private room and U.S. style meals. Food is available for self-prepared breakfasts and lunches. The main daily meal, usually dinner, is prepared and shared together with the family. Transportation to and from campus varies; most families are on a convenient bus line to Green River. Some families drive students to and from campus daily.

The Host Family provides the following first-time arrival services:

  • Airport greeting and pick-up
