GTI Spring Holiday Homestay

In November of 2015, GTI set up 33 visiting international students in local homes during the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We received fantastic feedback–from the hosts and guests alike! In order to provide a similar experience during the Spring Semester, GTI will be organizing Homestays over the Spring Holiday Weekend (March 25-March 27).

Applications are now open for hosts and guests interested in this program. The application deadline is Sunday, March 6, and we hope to have all guests placed by Friday, March 11.


Hosts can choose the number of guests as well as the duration of stay. Hosts will be responsible for providing rides and meals for all guests.

If you are willing to open your home to visiting international students for the Spring Holiday, please complete this short Google Form.


International students attending NC State University are invited to apply for this home stay program by completing this short Google Form. Priority will be given to students studying on GTI programs and those with the earliest applications. You will be notified by Friday, March 11 if you have been chosen for this program.
