Secure and Welcoming Hosts

Our hosts offer more than rooms for rent; they offer a support system and authentic interest in welcoming a student to America. AHN is the first standards-based nationally focused homestay organization in America. We conduct national criminal background checks, in-home interviews, and complete home inspections. Our sophisticated student/host matching service, 24/7 critical-incident service, banking and payment services, and airport transportation services make the AHN homestay experience the best in the nation.

Great Homestays Near Your School

American Homestay Network (AHN) matches each student with a matching host family located near the student’s place of education. The host will provide the student with a private bedroom, an agreed upon meal plan, and will assist the student in learning the local customs and transportation systems, as well as help the student become acquainted with the American way of life. Many students enjoy activities with their local family and become life-long friends.

Value for Money

The American Homestay Network operates in regions across the United States. Each region has student pricing specific to the living costs and services being made available in that region. AHN Homestay offers the best value for money option for the early stages of an international student being welcomed, culturalized and accommodated as they prepare for the commencement of their studies in the USA.
