Our Host Network

Join Our Host Network

The GTI brings hundreds of international students and small groups each year to NC State for short-term study, training, research, or cultural visits. We are looking for globally-minded families and individuals interested in hosting one or more visitors for a one-time dinner in the home or the occasional brief homestay.

The information you provide is only accessible to GTI staff members. You can also change your answers at any time if your situation changes. Once you complete the form, we will add you to an email list when hosting opportunities arise throughout the year. There are typically more opportunities during the academic year.
