Thank you for the interest that you have shown in providing Homestay Accommodation for overseas and local students. Please take time to read this information as it contains a lot of details that might prove useful to you if you are contemplating offering Homestay Accommodation for the first time. Our students will be studying at local University’s and Colleges.
Students are welcome to join in all aspects of university life. The campus offers a safe and friendly environment to pursue tertiary studies. Students will have use of university resources including cafes, the library, dedicated computing laboratories and sporting and recreational facilities.
Teaching staff are highly qualified and university modes of teaching are used. These include lectures and small group tutorials.
Homestays are expected to provide the following when hosting a student. An independent and private bedroom with all bedding, storage (wardrobe, drawers, hanging space), towels, study desk and light, heating, cooling, and laundry facilities. It is expected that homestays provide three meals a day and ongoing general access to food. The key word here is ‘provide’. Hosting a student should be looked upon as not a lot different than caring for your own child.
