Homestay

Homestay family sitting around a table playing gamesWe provide international students the opportunity to live with an American family. This is an excellent way to quickly improve your English, as well as become more familiar with American customs and culture. Your host family will also take you to events and help you become familiar with Spokane. Students can request the type of family they would like to be placed with: quiet or busy, with or without children, and more. Our homestay program is managed on-campus and every family has successfully completed an application form, home inspection, personal interview, and Washington State Patrol background check. You can choose to have your family cook all your meals, or you can choose to cook them yourself.
