How Hosts are Paid

StudentRoomStay (SRS) pays a stipend to our hosts to help cover the day-to-day food and accommodation expenses of hosting a homestay student. Student weekly fees are paid directly to SRS by the student. We retain a small portion for managing the homestay and the remainder of the student fee is reimbursed to the host. Hosts are paid in a two-week cycle, with funds transferred directly into the host’s nominated bank account.

We handle all the payments to prevent disputes and protect the student from any arrangement that might compromise his or her health and safety while in a trusted homestay environment. SRS will issue a 1099 Tax Form to each homestay host at the end of each tax year for annual homestay fees over $600.

How Hosts are Paid

We will always be fully transparent about our pricing and payments! If you ever have any questions about receiving payments for hosting an international student, please don't hesitate to check out our host family resources or contact our team. We look for welcoming, caring host families to host international students—the stipend is just one of many benefits of the unique cultural exchange of homestay.


Lock In Your Off-Campus Housing

RoomStay is simply a way for college students to find secure student housing—in a safe home or apartment, 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.
