How Hosts Are Paid

StudentRoomStay Concierge (SRS Concierge) pays a stipend to our hosts to help cover the day-to-day food and accommodation expenses of hosting a homestay student.

Student weekly fees are paid directly to SRS Concierge by the student. We retain a small portion for managing the homestay and the remainder of the student fee is reimbursed to the host. Hosts are paid in a two-week cycle, with funds transferred directly into the host’s nominated bank account. We handle all the payments to prevent disputes and protect the student from any arrangement that might compromise his or her health and safety while in a trusted homestay environment. SRS Concierge will issue a 1099 Tax Form to each homestay host at the end of each tax year for annual homestay fees over $600.

This is my first time coming to America. I feel very wonderful. My homestay family is friendly. The school has many activities. It has improved my vision of the world. After class, I always participate in conversations with students. This is my great life.

I’ve been living with my host family for almost two years, they love me so much. My host mom is kindly and she took great care of me as her son. She also cares about my grades, I really appreciated that she helped me so much.
