USH founder Emerson Torres explains the vision.
At Universal Student Housing, we believe that the United States offers an education experience that is unparalleled. But for an international student the challenges and obstacles can be great. We believe that this process should be simplified, and that studying in the US should be a pleasant experience. That’s where USH can help, making the experience of finding great host families and matching them with terrific students easy and simple.
At USH, two values define us. First, our attention will be focused on you from the first phone call or email, through the entire homestay. Second, we do our best to be highly efficient, and always available. We love to provide a level of service that makes us different from other homestay agencies. (or companies?). We understand the unique challenges of international students, and we make every effort to make the entire process simple, fun, and memorable. Backed by sophisticated technology, our highly trained staff creates matches between international students and host families that result in experiences that everyone loves to remember.
We allow you to locate potential homestays by your own unique selection criteria and preferences.
o You pay all housing fees directly to us, so you don’t have to worry about payments to the families. Our desire is to make your homestay a truly positive experience.
We work closely with homestay families and housing coordinators to make sure your housing needs are satisfied.
You’ll receive a welcome packet complete with transportation information and other useful resources to help you find your way around your new surroundings.
We provide emergency services 24/7, 365 days a year! You will never find yourself in a position where we can’t help you.
