Become a Host Family
We are looking for families to become homestay providers to our international students. We need families for one term, two terms and full-year periods. Families are reimbursed $290 per week.
What kind of families are we looking for?
Warm, welcoming families where students are included and can experience the Kiwi lifestyle. Families need to be available and willing to spend time with their students and show them around Auckland.
Students should feel at home and integrated into your family’s life.
English must be your first language, and your culture in terms of food and lifestyle needs to be Kiwi or very similar to the Kiwi culture.
We understand that it is not always easy to make the decision to take an international student into your home. We will endeavour to provide all the information you require to help you to make a decision.
We try to match students to families with similar interests; the information you provide to us in the application form below helps us in this process.
