Live with a host family

Homestays are a popular option for international students and under 18-year-old students.

During your homestay, you will be provided with your own bedroom, meals, and a quiet place to study.

Your host family will:

  • Welcome you into their home
  • Help you to get to know local customs and culture
  • Support you during your studies

Homestay bookings are for a minimum of four weeks.

Macquarie University has three recommended homestay providers. Please contact these providers directly for further information, to apply and make a booking.
