Become a Host - Communicate School

Become a Host

Do you have a spare room?

Do you want to host international students?

If you live within a 45-minute travel time from Piccadilly Gardens, we would like to hear from you.

This is a great opportunity to meet students from different cultures.


Students come to Manchester to study English in our school and experience British culture with homestay families. Most students are between 16 and 30 years old, from different countries and they stay in Manchester for between 2 and 12 weeks.

We offer:

  • Bookings matching your preference (age, length of stay, etc.)
  • Full support of our staff during the student’s stay
  • Prompt biweekly payments – £120-£140/week depending on type of room and meals

We ask you to provide:

  • Friendly atmosphere
  • Room with a bed,  wardrobe and, if possible, a desk
  • Breakfast (cereal, toast) and home-made dinner (eg. pasta, rice or potatoes with meat or fish, pizza, curry, etc.) or access to the kitchen for students who choose the self-catering option (city centre flats only)
  • Wi-fi access and washing facilities

Please note – at the moment we are not looking for hosts who can accept female students only.

Give us a call if you have any questions: 0161 235 8480 or complete the form below to apply.
