FOCUS Homestays are for Portland State University international students and scholars who wish to experience life in an American home. Students will pay for a homestay (room and food) and will most likely need to commute from 30 to 60 minutes.
A long-term homestay may increase your contact with American culture and help you improve your English.
A short-term homestay is often a good option when you first arrive in Portland and need time to look for permanent housing or are waiting to move into a dormitory.
