The private homestay agencies listed below will help connect international, or other students interested, to host families. We believe that living with families will create a better learning environment, and provide more social and emotional support for students who may not have relatives to live with on Oahu. For our international students, it will aid in total immersion into another culture.
After submitting your application, you may contact homestay agencies for current prices and detailed living conditions and information.
Be sure to ask about location, language(s) spoken in the home, number of homestay students in the home, and what is included in the price (e.g. placement fees, airport pick-up, meals, sales tax, etc.).
