Live in NZ Accommodation When you are away from home, living with a locally based family is a great way to settle in, feel at home, make new friends and experience New Zealand student life to the full. The homestay accommodation offers a supportive family environment. All International students live with a Long Bay College approved homestay family unless living with their natural parents or a member of their family (a designated caregiver). Students are not allowed to live independently. All families are checked by our Homestay Coordinator before hosting a student, and careful monitoring is undertaken throughout each student’s stay. All students have their own bedroom and are expected to live as a part of the family. Looking after the wellbeing of a student is a high priority. Our Homestay Coordinator is available Monday to Friday, 8am to 3pm for all Homestay issues.
