Safe and Welcoming
Homestays for University Students
Here at AmeriStudent, the safety, well-being, and comfortability of our homestay university students is a top priority. As a result, we don’t place our students with random host families but instead, allow students to personally choose from our selection of vetted host families by virtual meetings and home tours. This way college students can go into their homestay situation having already met their host family with a better idea of what to expect, increasing comfort and compatibility.
On top of our personalized family/student matching process, every household applicant goes through a series of national criminal background checks, at-home inspections, interviews, training, and orientations to further ensure student safety. We only choose families who have a genuine interest in opening up their home to a college student and providing incredible hospitality, kindness, and friendship.
AmeriStudent is also a CSIET-approved program, meaning we’re audited each year to verify the highest standard of student living conditions. We are always available to communicate with our students if the need ever arises, making sure to stay closely connected and involved throughout the entire academic homestay process.
