Students studying in the Global Launch: Campus Immersion English language program may choose to live with an American host family or in private, off-campus housing.

On-campus housing

Global Launch students who want to live in ASU on-campus housing must be conditionally admitted to Arizona State University.

American homestay

Many Global Launch students choose to live with an American host family. When you live with an American host family, you will learn more about American family culture and fully surround yourself in the English language. Families may vary; some families are single parents with children and some are older couples without children.

Do you want to know what it is like to live with an American host family? Watch this video about one of our current Global Launch students and her host family.
