In Partnership With

Contra Costa Christian School

StudentRoomStay is ready to find that special American host family who will welcome you, support you, and make memories with you during your time abroad. 


Lock In Your Homestay Family

RoomStay is simply a way for high school students to find secure student housing—in a safe home, near their school—for a great price. StudentRoomStay has multiple properties in Santa Barbara, CA and connections with student housing properties across the USA.

Additionally, many of our trusted host families have an extra room to spare that they'd like to rent out to a local college student. Unlike homestay, the host takes a more hands-off approach and will not be closely involved with the student's life. Students will have more independence and a room to call their own.


Information About Our Hosts

Our hosts are an integral part of a homestay for international students, as they’re responsible for opening up their home, welcoming a student, and providing the highest form of hospitality throughout the entire experience. Your host family will guide you through your U.S. journey and help you with any questions, concerns or issues that arise.  

  • 24/7 support

  • Personalized student/family matches

  • Vetted selection of households

  • Lifelong friendship opportunities

  • Extra assistance transitioning to American student life

  • Help navigating the local community
