Become a Host Family
We are looking for families to become homestay providers to our international students. We need families for one term, two terms and full-year periods. Families are reimbursed $310 per week.

What kind of families are we looking for?

Warm, welcoming families where students are included and can experience the Kiwi lifestyle. Families need to be available and willing to spend time with their students and show them around Auckland.
A host is expected to provide a clean and comfortable bedroom with a bed, wardrobe (built-in or free-standing) and drawers, linen and towels, desk and lamp, heating in the room, meals and laundry. We are looking for families in the Rosehill College zone who speak fluent English at home and who are inclusive.

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 helps us in this process.

If you have a spare room and are keen for a new cultural experience please call Caroline on 09 295 0661 Ext 884 or email
