How It Works

Why Ojisu?

A unique homestay community built on transparency

After 6 years of experience in the homestay industry, Ojisu debuts a brand new homestay-matching platform that offers unparalleled transparency. It grants host families the freedom to name their own prices, supplies students with thousands of host family options, and supports detailed profiles for both students and host families that can be viewed before homestay are arranged. With Ojisu, you are not just assigned someone to live with, but instead are able to find and choose your ideal host family or student.

A safe and reliable living environment

Security and reliability are top concerns of traveling students, their parents, and host families. These aspects are never compromised on Ojisu. We offer federal and state criminal background screenings on host families, trilateral online video meetings, and provide on-site home screenings according to customer requests. At Ojisu, we put in the time and effort to ensure a safe and reliable homestay experience.  

Multi-dimensional support services

In reality, Ojisu is much more than just a homestay platform. Ojisu is a community of resources that work to accelerate international student growth and success in the United States. Through our cooperation with CSIET-certified service providers, comprehensive custodial services, periodical home visits, in-depth academic support, and legal advising services are all available with Ojisu.
