Happy Friday everyone,
We know most of you are looking for apartments, but another solution for housing is a homestay property. You can find links to a handful of homestay providers here, and we have included details on two of them below, who have confirmed that they have homes available near SDSU and nearby.
Home Placement Service (HPS) is located in Coronado, just 20 minutes drive from SDSU. You can check out their website at: homeplacement.com. They ask that you fill-out a short application online regarding what you are looking for, and after submitting it, you can call them at: +1-619-423-1449, with any questions you may have. Their monthly rate is approximately $1,000/month, including 2 meals a day, and $800/month if you do not need meals. They have houses with one and two furnished bedrooms available, and each student gets their own private room. Students can arrange to go meet the family and see the home & room before you agree to live there. HPS facilitates the visit, but does not go on the visit with you.
A second local homestay provider is OVECS, and their website is: azhomestay.com. The phone number to reach them at is: +1-480-633-8191. You will fill out the application online and OVECS will reply within 24 hrs. A local representative named Karen is able to assist you as needed. You are required to pay a placement fee of $290 that is not refundable, and their monthly rate is $895, which includes 2 meals a day, and a private fully furnished bedroom.
If you are interested in a homestay option, feel free to reach out to one of these agencies ASAP, and they will be happy to help you find something right away! If you have already found housing for the fall 2021 semester, please disregard this email, and congratulations on finding a place to live this fall!
Have a great semester everyone, and don't forget about the First Night Fest event tonight, at the Student Union on campus, from 9 pm-1 am. You can find more info here.
