Host Family Program

This International Student Host Family Program matches international students with local "host families" who help them feel welcome and settle into their new lives in the United States. International students will still live on campus. There is no extra cost to join the Host Family Program. Your host family will plan time together with you (meals, movie, sightseeing, etc.) at least a few times a semester and include you, whenever possible, in holiday and family celebrations.

How Do I Find a Host Family?
Once you become a students at Western, the Host Family Coordinator will match you with a family based on indicated preferences such as hobbies, nationality, gender, age, etc.
