2021: $900/month + a onetime $400 placement fee.*

2022: $1100/month + a onetime $450 placement fee.*

*Placement fee paid directly to Fia Parker, Guaranteed Homestay Director.

Students should complete the enclosed guaranteed housing application and return it well in advance of their arrival date if they want assistance from the Guaranteed Homestay Director. The application will be used to help match the housing needs of each student with the housing available from our hosts.   (Get Acrobat PDF Reader)
