Student and Community Emergency Hosts
Emergencies happen. At times some newly-arriving international students may experience unforeseen circumstances related to temporary housing, and as such are in need of a place to stay, at no cost, for a few nights. They might need to sleep on a couch, knowing their hosts are friendly people with an interest in providing safe, welcoming and secure temporary accommodation.
All arrangements are subject to availability of volunteers.
The International Housing Office does not have a screening process in place for selecting volunteer hosts. Both student and host are expected to treat one another with respect and courtesy, and to abide by the Host Program Guidelines. Failure to comply with these guidelines or inappropriate behaviour may preclude you from future participation in this program. Both the host and student enter the host arrangement at their own risk.
