Become a Host Family for an International Student

As we near the end of the spring semester, it is already time to think about the class of 2020. JCU’s international class is growing with each day and we need host families to help welcome them to our campus.

As a host family for our international students, the required time commitment is very little. New international students will arrive on August 16 and 17. We ask that host families, at minimum, provide transportation to shopping so that students can buy necessary items and help them to set up their dorm rooms by August 18. After that, your level of commitment and engagement with your international student is whatever you and they are interested in.

Our international students often how impressed they are by our friendly campus community. Help show the new international students the warmth of JCU and become a host family.

For more information and an application, contact Megan McBride at mmcbride@jcu.edu.
