It is our goal that the homestay experience be enjoyable for both the homestay guest and the host. Please communicate with us if there is a problem so that we can resolve it together. We can help you resolve many types of problems, such as misunderstandings, cross-cultural problems, and missed expectations.

If you have tried unsuccessfully to resolve problems with your hosts and would like a new homestay, we will be happy to assist you. We will place you with a different host at no extra charge during the first academic quarter or first three months of your homestay. We promise we will not discuss your problems with your host without your permission. We will discuss with you, ways to create a successful homestay situation with new hosts. Then, we will make a new placement and arrangements for you to move into your new homestay. If after the first academic quarter or first three months and you need to move, we will ask that you pay a reapplication fee.
