Kingston Homestay hosts needed for international students

The Queen’s School of English (QSoE) is looking for host families to host incoming international students in the Kingston area for a variety of short- (three to four week) and longer-term (12 to 14 week) placements.

International students (strictly following government travel requirements and all required health and safety protocols) are once again coming to Queen’s and Kingston to study English and there is a need to find homes to host them.

The Homestay experience is memorable for both students and hosts. When you host international students, your family benefits from lifelong friendships, global awareness, and stronger interpersonal skills.

Homestay hosts include couples, families with children, and individuals from a variety of backgrounds and diverse living situations. Hosts receive a generous allowance to offset expenses, 24/7 support, special health and safety training, and the opportunity to bring the world to their front door.
