What is a homestay?

Homestay is a popular form of accommodation provided to International students by New Zealand based families.

Where a student stays with a local family in their home. It provides a more immersive experience for the student to learn about the local culture, customs, and way of life. In addition to providing a comfortable room and meals, the host family may also offer to take students on local tours and/or activities, making the experience even more enriching.

Becoming part of a local family is the best way for a student to learn about New Zealand. Homestay provides home comforts as well as the warmth and security of family life.

Hosting International students can be a very rewarding experience for your family, it can enrich your lives, through gaining some understanding of other cultures, encountering unique experiences and build friendships that would last a lifetime.
