Global Ties Akron - First Weeker Program Application

Upon request with 2 weeks advance notice Global Ties Akron can arrange for a short term home stay host family.

Global Ties Akron host families volunteer to provide you a temporary stay with them so that you can find permanent housing near the University. Temporary accommodation is for up to 7-14 nights’ stay at Global Ties Akron family’s home. (We do not offer permanent housing placement with a local family, although we do have resource connections and lists for apartments in the university area).

The host may provide some meals, but for the most part you are expected to shop for your own food while at your host’s home. Your host family may also provide transportation to and from the University of Akron. (The Akron Global Concierge Section on our website provides incoming internationals with useful resources to help you find your way around and get established in Akron, Ohio.

* Please note that students are asked to make looking for permanent housing a priority after their arrival in Akron. We would not want to inconvenience our volunteer host families by extended stays.

There is a $75 fee for service. To take advantage of our First Weekers Program please provide the information requested below. We can then generate an invoice through which you can pay the fee via PayPal online. If you cannot do this you can pay upon arrival.
