Become a homestay host

We are continuing to have record breaking numbers of students requiring homestay. Students are also coming to Australia younger and younger. Education institutions are also accepting students more often throughout the year. All of these reasons combined mean that we are constantly looking out for who has rooms available. Please keep this in mind and do let us know when your rooms become available. Even if we don’t have a student straight away, we will add your name to the availability list and be in touch with you as soon as we do. The particularly high demand areas are those with convenient transport to UNSW, City, Strathfield, Kogarah, Beverly Hills, Chatswood, Parramatta and Cabramatta
