Become a Host


Hosting an International Student is a rewarding experience. Families often develop relationships that last for years. Students are treated as part of the family and engage with many family activities. Hosts are responsible for providing food breakfast and family dinners, a private bedroom and a welcoming family. Students use public transportation to attend classes at CSUMB and host families need to be within 40 minutes of the campus.Family stipends depend on the program and length of the student’s stay. Most programs are three to four weeks and some students stay for a semester or more.
