Starting fall 2019, a residence hall will be available to all Shoreline students. Located in the heart of the College’s 83 acres, the new building will feature 68 units that house 216 bed spaces with shared living rooms and kitchens.
International students at Shoreline Community College are encouraged to begin their experience in the United States by doing a "homestay," which means living with a local, American family. The homestay environment can provide additional support with cultural adjustment and airport pick-up, as well as facilitating language learning.
Shoreline recommends three organizations: ABODE, American Homestay Network and USA International, Inc.

We strongly encourage you to apply for a homestay as soon as possible once you are admitted to Shoreline. All three homestay organizations above have refund policies for students whose visas are denied. ABODE and American Homestay Network both offer a full application fee and deposit refunds to students who show their visa denial letter from a U.S. Embassy or Consulate. USA International, Inc., will refund the application fee and deposit, but charges a $25 transaction fee. You are encouraged to contact the organizations directly if you have any questions.
