Apply for a free short-term homestay
Thank you for your interest in applying for a brief cultural exchange with a volunteer host family to help you get ready for your time at UC San Diego. Please understand that a stay with a host family is expected to last 3 to 6 days.
Answer the questions below to help us in matching you with a suitable volunteer family.
If any of your answers change, please come back to this site to fill out the application again, but make sure to make a comment that it is an update to a previous application.
Please apply as soon as possible, as the number of volunteer families are limited. If you apply with less than 3 weeks before your arrival, we may not be able to find a suitable volunteer family.
Thank you for allowing us to share our hospitality and get to know you!
