The Safest and Friendliest Host Families

SRS host families and students develop meaningful relationships that often last long after the student has left.

All families must pass national criminal background checks, interviews, home inspections, orientation and training to be part the StudentRoomStay homestay program.

We make sure hosts are genuinely interested in welcoming students to the USA and helping their guests become acquainted with the American way of life.
