Temporary Homestay - Volunteers
Open your home and heart to an international student or scholar for 1 to 3 nights when they first arrive in Madison! A Temporary Homestay host can provide any of the following:
- Welcome the student as they arrive in Madison.
- Provide a brief period of rest and comfort.
- Familiarize the student with the UW campus.
- Assist with their move to long-term housing in a dormitory or apartment.
- Answer questions about life in Madison and the US.
