Housing Options

Students will be placed together and may request roommates on the housing application form.

“My host family was amazing. They treated me like I was truly a part of their family. The meals my host mom made were delicious, and my host siblings always included me in their plans with their friends. I still keep in contact with them. I really couldn't have asked for anything better.”

-Summer Student, West Chester University
