Housing Options for NICE Students
Homestay with Host Family

Living with an American family offers a view of life in Hawai‘i PLUS plenty of English practice! The private homestay agencies listed below are happy to place NICE students with American families. 

Please contact homestay agencies for current prices and detailed information.  Average price is about $1500/month and usually includes two meals. Be sure to ask about location, language(s) spoken in the home, number of homestay students in the home, and what is included in the price (placement fee? airport pick-up? meals? sales tax?)
