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 at this time. We are monitoring the situation closely and will post our plans as soon as possible. Watch our COVID-19 Updates and this website page for more information.
