Homestay Housing

International Students

Homestays are a unique opportunity for Lake Tahoe Community College students to live with a local host family while attending school. We work closely with Student Room Stay (SRS), a homestay company that connects international students with local Tahoe families who are interested in renting private rooms to college students.

This housing program is open to both domestic and international students who are 18 years of age or older and can be prearranged before your arrival in Lake Tahoe. The homestay option offers the opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with the college and surrounding Lake Tahoe region, as well as meet others in the community and make friends.

What is a Homestay?
Homestay housing offers a safe living environment with a local American host family. Detailed background checks are performed on all host families to help connect families to a good-fit student, and in-person home visits are performed before student arrivals.
A homestay provides:
  • A furnished private room
  • Option of up to 3 homecooked meals per day or access to a kitchen
  • For international students, an opportunity to experience American culture and to improve English skills
