International Student with homestay "mom" making dinner 

This option offers the international student the opportunity to live with an American family. The student can learn firsthand what family life in the United States is like. Homestay is a great way to make friends and improve English skills. Some homestays are within walking distance of the campus; others are within an easy public bus ride of Citrus College.

Every homestay is different -- some families have children and others do not, some families provide the student with a room and home cooked meals, and others provide the room only.

Citrus College International Student Center partners with several different local homestay companies. To learn more about each company, please click on the links below to read more about what each company provides on their own websites.
