Requirements to host a foreign exchange student

A Home

You will need a vacant private room with a bed, dresser, and desk along with functioning internet and laundry.


The host provides breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the student. Breakfast and lunch can be self-serve.

Love & Care

By sharing American culture and hospitality with an international student, you’re showing the love and care that our ideal host would provide.

Short-term hosting to suit your busy lifestyle

Homestay hosting has never been this easy or this convenient! With our dependable support services and our host guarantees, you can look forward to a worry-free experience of hosting your visiting student(s). Our Homestay host programs are typically 2-4 weeks in length, during which you’ll be fully supported and guided by Experience expert team.

Guaranteed Payments

You never have to discuss money with your students. As one of our hosts, you are always paid on time by Experience.

24/7 Standby Support

What if the student you’re hosting gets sick, or there’s some sort of other issue? No problem, our team will personally take care of it, any time – day or night. We’re always only a phone call away.

Legal Guardianship

Experience is legally responsible for the students while they are in the United States, so you have nothing to worry about while they are in your home as you are not legally responsible for them.

We pay 10% more on average than other Seattle homestay companies.
