Many students on our professional development courses and visiting student programme choose to stay with a carefully selected local host family.

The International Study and Language Institute at the University of Reading has a network of host families who offer accommodation to visiting international students and educational providers who are undertaking short courses.

We look for hosts who live within walking distance or a short bus ride from the University.

Our hosts are paid a competitive rate for providing accommodation to our participants.

If you are interested in becoming a host family or would like further information, please contact Louise Crompton by telephone: 0118 378 5768 or email:
