Enquire about becoming a homestay host provider

We appreciate your interest in becoming a host provider for our international students. This is an opportunity to provide a valuable service for your community whilst earning income from a spare bedroom that you might have. We are looking for half-board host providers (bed, breakfast, evening meal, seven days a week, and light lunch added on weekends and bank holidays) for any 16 – 60-year-old students.

The role of the Host Provider is to offer a homely environment for an International student to experience the British way of living. Time spent with them and chatting over meals helps them to learn the language.

Application Requirements:

  • A completed DBS (police check) for anyone living in the house who is 18+. These forms are given at the initial visit and must be sent off and processed, which can take up to 6 weeks. The cost per application is £44.
  • A current gas safety check needs to be provided
  • Provide a suitable dining area where you all eat dinner with the students.
  • Online modules for safeguarding, Prevent and e-safety to be completed.
  • Unlimited internet is to be offered at no extra cost.
  • Name, address and contact number of two friends or colleagues to write to them for a character reference.
  • The accommodation needs to be in good decorative order, have clean carpets, etc., and is subject to an inspection.

We'd recommend reading the Host Provider guide before beginning your application.

Please provide your postcode. Ideally your home should be within 30 minutes walk of our Chichester, Worthing, Northbtrook or Brighton campuses.
