We receive over 200 homestay applications in the fall and try to place as many students as possible. Welcome Week students may sleep anywhere you may have room; FIUTS also has air mattresses you can borrow!
Can you host a couple or family?
FIUTS works hard to make personalized matches between hosts and students based on preferences and mutual interests, so any information you can provide us is very helpful. That being said, overly restrictive preferences make it significantly harder to find a match for you. We recommend that you keep an open mind and try to avoid making generalizations about an age level, gender, or nationality based on a single experience.
Do you currently have any pets? *

Can you be an emergency host? *
Occasionally, FIUTS needs a last-minute host if a student's original host becomes unavailable on short notice. Would you like to be included on a list of hosts to be contacted in the event that we have an emergency hosting opportunities?
In the fall quarter, students arrive at various dates and we will find a slot that works for you. Homestays last 7-10 days.
FIUTS needs hosts not only in August/September for UW students, but all year round to welcome great students and teachers from all over the world. Would you be interested in hosting at other times of year?
