Green River College International Programs

Information for Host Families

Green River College's International Housing program began in 1989 with fifty host families and less than 100 international students. The program has grown to 450 active host families and between 1,600 and 1,700 international students.

More often than not, international students build lifelong bonds with their host families and Green River truly values and embraces the importance of host families in the community.

Thank you to all of our host families for being kind, respectful, gracious and sharing your homes with our students. You help make this program the success that it is.
