Overview Academics Support Housing Culture Dates & Fees Application



Senegalese are known for teranga, or hospitality. Their warmth and generosity can be easily seen and felt over the course of a homestay living experience. One of the best ways to deepen one’s immersion into the local community, it is also an exceptional way to gain a greater cross-cultural understanding.

During the pre-departure period, students complete a housing questionnaire which our staff use to make the best homestay match. All hosts speak English and one or two students are paired per host family.

Students are provided with a private bedroom with linens, access to common areas including the kitchen, daily breakfast and dinner, and weekly laundry.
