Become a Host Family

During college holiday times, some of the international students attending UWC Atlantic may be unable to travel home.
Host families open their own homes offering accommodation alongside friendship, support, advice and comfort during holiday times. These support relationships are invaluable for students who are away from home and cannot return there due to a variety of reasons.
