Parent & Family Programs

Thanksgiving Homestay

The Offices of Parent and Family Programs and International Student Affairs in the Division of Student Enrollment, Engagement, and Success Updates at Hofstra University are inviting you to participate in the Thanksgiving Homestay Program as a way to connect students who want to remain in the New York City metropolitan/Long Island area over the Thanksgiving break with hosts who will be celebrating the holiday. Hosts include families of Hofstra students, alumni, administration, staff or faculty, hosting in their homes. The program introduces students and hosts based only on the information that each provides in their applications for the program—Hofstra has not independently verified those statements nor conducted any background screens. The program relies entirely on volunteer hosts and participating students. The host family discusses transportation, accommodation, and dietary restrictions with their assigned student(s). If you would like to host, please email for the application form.

Please call Parent and Family Programs at 516-463-4698 or email us at, if you have any questions.
