International students often begin their experience in the United States by living in a homestay, which means living with a local, American family. Students usually have a private bedroom and meals may be included. This is a great way to practice your English and experience American living.

Many Shoreline students have used the following homestay agencies: ABODE, Intercultural Homestays & Services, and USA International, Inc.

Homestay Application Form

We strongly encourage you to apply for on-campus housing or a homestay as soon as possible once you are admitted to Shoreline. All three homestay organizations offer a full or partial application fee and deposit refunds to students who show their visa denial letter from a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. You are encouraged to contact the organizations directly if you have any questions.
