Temporary Homestay

This program allows Madison-area residents the chance to open their homes and hearts to international students and scholars for 1 to 3 nights when they first arrive in Madison. Newly-arriving students have found this to be most helpful, as it provides a brief period of rest, comfort, and initial adjustment before they move into their long-term housing in dormitories or apartments. In addition, hosts can often answer many questions international students have about life in Madison and the US.
