Host Family Appeal

Have you ever considered hosting an International Student from Europe, South America or Asia?

International3We are looking for families to become Homestay Providers to our International Students. We need families for 1 term, 2 terms, and full-year periods.

Families need to be available and willing to spend time with their students and show them around Auckland.

English must be your first language, and your culture in terms of food and lifestyle needs to be Kiwi or very similar to the Kiwi culture.

Families are reimbursed $260 per week.


We understand that it is not always easy to make the decision to take an international student into your home; we will endeavour to provide all the information you require to help you to make a decision. 

We try to match students to families with similar interests; the information you provide to us in the application form below helps us in this process.
