Arranged by DIS: Stay in a Homestay with Local Hosts
The Homestay is one of the most popular housing options at DIS, providing a great introduction to local culture. Most of our hosts, as in U.S. cities, live in the suburbs and not in the city center, so you will travel daily on Copenhagen’s public transit system up to 60 minutes each way using a transportation pass provided to you by DIS. Homestays are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
Getting to Know Your Hosts
Participants selecting the Homestay often ask what to bring from the U.S. for their host. A small gift is a nice gesture, but by no means obligatory. Some suggestions include a token from your state (e.g. food, chocolates, book, college hat or t-shirt, a bottle of liquor or wine from your home region). It is also a good idea to show some photographs of your family – your host will be curious!
