STIPEND RATES BY LOCATION
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.
SAFE & SECURE 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.
