Who will you be hosting?

We have lots of international students arriving in September.  Many students are juniors (aged 13-17 years) and some are young adults (18+)

What will you need to do?

As a host family, we will match you with a student, or students, who will come to live with you during their stay in Bristol.

For 18+ students you will need to provide a single room and half board (breakfast and evening meal Monday to Friday, 3 meals at weekends)

For under 18 year old students single or twin room for the student(s)* and breakfast, packed lunch, and dinner each day.

You will need to have a gas safety certificate for your home and hosts for under 18 students will require an enhanced DBS (we can help you with this)
