Holiday Host Program

NYU’s Division of Student Affairs, Center for Multicultural Education and Programs and the Office of Global Services proudly invites you to participate in the annual NYU Holiday Host Program. This program provides our international students and students unable to go home with a chance to take full-advantage of the holiday break, and to celebrate Thanksgiving with a host family from the NYU community.

The goals of the program are to enable cross-cultural engagement beyond NYU’s campus and mutually creating deeper cultural understanding for all participants.


Application Closes November 13th

Hosts are Alumni, Faculty, Staff and American graduate students who are curious about other cultures and honored to share their own. They are willing to invite international students and students unable to home for the holiday to share in their Thanksgiving traditions.

There are numerous benefits to hosts. First, it creates an opportunity for to share in an exchange of cultural traditions and customs. Also, participation on the program will make a difference in a student's NYU experience by creating memories that last a lifetime.
