Temporary Homestay - Students/Scholars
MFIS volunteers provide free temporary housing for 1 to 3 nights when you first arrive in Madison. Students have found this to be most helpful, as it provides a brief period of rest, comfort, and initial adjustment while you finalize moving arrangements for your long-term housing in a dormitory or apartment. In addition, hosts can often answer questions you may have about life in Madison and the US.
Due to health and safety guidance related to COVID-19, MFIS is not providing Temporary Homestay for the fall semester of 2021. We are monitoring the situation closely and will post our plans as soon as possible regarding temporary homestay possibilities in January for the spring semester of 2022. Watch our COVID-19 Updates and this website page for more information.
