Student Homestay Options

Students looking for a welcoming place to live and wanting to add an enriching element to their Canadian experience can consider a homestay option. Homestay providers coordinate accommodations with a host family, which helps ease the transition into life in a new country.

Living downtown can be more expensive but there are more part-time work opportunities and with easy access to the subway students may opt to live in one of Toronto’s eclectic neighbourhoods.

Humber does not recommend any particular homestay provider and is unable to review the host families and their homes. Students should do their own evaluation of each homestay provider.

Please note that the International Centre is not responsible for the information provided by homestay providers. The prices and conditions are not part of Humber College’s tuition and should be negotiated directly by the student with the homestay provider.

Rental Accommodation is an off-campus housing listings resource to find a roommate or a place to live. Their service is free for students and they provide live student support.

The Humber IGS is a great choice if you want to study with other international students in a smaller downtown location. If you want to study these programs at Humber and are looking for a more traditional campus experience studying alongside Canadian and international students, we also offer these programs at our North and Lakeshore Campus.
