Mission Statement

The Host Family Program provides International Students from Stony Brook University with friendship to help them adjust to the university, the community and life in the United States during their studies.


The Host Family Program provides a new international student with continuing friendship and involvement with a family in the community. It was developed to offer hospitality to international students from a diverse group of community residents. Both students and host families are able to share an enriching cultural exchange and gain new perspectives about the world. THIS IS NOT A HOME-STAY PROGRAM.This is a nonsectarian program that respects the individual belief system of the participants

Would you recommend Host Family Program for International Students?

The opportunity that the university offers to members of the community in hosting foreign students to make them feel at home in a different country than theirs is priceless. It is the hope that these bonds forged under the program will help to foster a better understanding of America. We have been welcoming students for some thirty years and we still hear from the students today and are in contact. At the same time these students formed friendships that span from Asia to Europe to the Middle East which is vital (in my opinion) because the students are the movers and the shakers in their generation.
