Homestay Programs and Apartment Rentals 

Most international students reside with family members in Monmouth County. Brookdale does not offer on-campus housing, but applicants who do not have someone local to provide them with a place to stay still have many housing options. A common option is through a Homestay Program. These programs place international students with local families. They can also arrange transport from the airport. Your housing should be arranged at least 4-6 weeks before the start of the semester. Homestays are a particularly good option for single students.

Some popular homestay options are:

Student Room Stay

International Housing Placement Service 

Sara’s Homestay

You can also choose to rent an apartment. This is a good option for students bringing their families, or those who prefer a more independent living situation. You should arrive at LEAST two weeks before the start of the semester in order to locate suitable housing. We recommend you to search surrounding towns and compare prices. International students have found inexpensive housing in Eatontown, Long Branch, Neptune, Ocean, as well as the Matawan/Aberdeen area. The towns of Lincroft, Holmdel, Freehold, and Red Bank are usually more expensive.
