Visiting Host Program

Sign Up for the Visiting Host Program

If you are not living in a Homestay, sign up for the Visiting Host program! This will give you the opportunity to meet locals and engage in local culture by being matched with a local host, who you can visit or go on excursions with. DIS Visiting Hosts sign up mainly because they have an interest in learning about another culture and want to share their own.

Visiting Hosts may or may not have children, and may be a single parent, a retired couple, an individual with a tight-knit extended family, and have various ethnicities and orientations.

If you are genuinely interested in a building a relationship with you host(s), and can commit to getting together with them at least once a month, then this is a program for you!

Exactly how many times you meet up is up to you and your host(s). DIS will subsidize your transportation costs, covering up to four return trips to your Visiting Hosts using public transport (with a cap at 400 DKK). Be aware that if you choose to go on an excursion with your host(s), they are not expected to pay for food or any entrance tickets, etc. – so keep this in mind when making plans.

Apply for the Visiting Host Program before you depart for Copenhagen in DIS Student Registration.

DIS will endeavor to find visiting hosts for as many students as possible, but depending on demand cannot guarantee a match.
