Australia’s Highest Homestay Standards

Over the last seven years, the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) has set a new standard for international student homestays. We have been the leading provider of homestay accommodation in Australia since 2008. Our highly regarded standards based approach has been successfully implemented throughout the United States of America since 2012 with our partner company, the American Homestay Network (AHN-USA).

AHN brings decades of experience in technology, marketing, and operations, as well as proven policies, procedures, standards, training, and online systems resulting in the most comprehensive homestay program in the industry. Our service offerings include a sophisticated host/student matching process, automated payment services, a rigorous background checking program for hosts, a 24/7 critical-incident service, airport transportation services, and online cultural and hosting training and testing—all of which is all facilitated through our HMS™ (Homestay Management System) technology. This system facilitates communications, applications, placements, and payments for all stakeholders—students, agents, hosts, and institutions.

AHN has a mission to provide a safe, comfortable, and culturally enriching experience for all parties involved in homestay. We view our hosts as ambassadors for our country. Our selection process ensures that our hosts are interested, motivated and fully capable to offer a supportive environment to ensure each student’s successful integration into Australian culture. Our hosts provide more than a room for rent; they also offer a support system and authentic interest in welcoming a student to Australia. We know that a smoothly executed, positive introduction to a new country is helpful in ensuring that an international student can fulfill his or her educational goals.

We continually strive to remain the Australian leader in homestay accommodation. We are committed to meeting the needs of your institution, your students, their agents and families. We believe through these partnerships, we can each focus on our core services to provide a unified approach to the International Student Experience in Australia. If you have not yet partnered with us, we encourage your institution or any individual who is interested in learning about our program to contact us for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
