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.
