Housing Fees

It is recommended that housing is booked upon application or at least one session prior to arrival, whichever is greater. Housing availability is not guaranteed upon arrival if appropriate forms and fees were not submitted at least one session prior to arrival in order to secure housing reservation.

Students are responsible for reviewing the TLC Homestay Policy, along with completing the homestay application and paying the placement fee before homestay arrangement will be secured. Once a student accepts a placement, verbally or in writing, the contract between that student and family begins and policies apply.
