The International Hospitality Committee (IHC) International Friends is a cooperative effort between International Student and Scholar Services and volunteers in the local community. Our goal is to connect international students/faculty/staff and local people for mutual friendship, support, and cultural exchange. Matches are made based on the information you provide in the form below.
*THE INTERNATIONAL FRIENDS PROGRAM IS COMPLETELY VOLUNTARY, ON BOTH SIDES, AND IS BASED UPON MUTUAL TRUST BETWEEN THE HOST FAMILY AND THE STUDENT. WHILE CARE IS TAKEN TO MATCH A STUDENT WITH A FAMILY THAT HAS SIMILAR TASTES AND INTERESTS, THE UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT URBANA-CHAMPAIGN DOES NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY INCIDENT(S) ARISING FROM THE RELATIONSHIP. PLEASE INFORM US IF YOUR ASSIGNMENT IS NOT WORKING OUT SO THAT A MORE SUITABLE MATCH CAN BE MADE.
