How to Apply for Housing
At the end of the PELA Application form, you will be asked if you wish PELA to help you with housing placement. Click "Yes", and you will be asked about what type of housing you want, as well as your host family preferences. Please note that PELA may not find a family which fits all of your preferences, but will try to find a family which fits your preferences best.
The Housing Placement Fee, Airport Pick-up Fee, and Housing Deposit must be received before we arrange housing. Housing placement is not guaranteed with less than 14 days notice. It takes approximately 2-3 weeks to arrange for a homestay or room at the student house.
Housing Fees Refund Policy
The Housing Placement Fee and Housing Deposit are NON-REFUNDABLE once you have been confirmed placement in a homestay or the student house. The Airport Pick-up Fee is REFUNDABLE if your housing request is canceled before your scheduled arrival in Portland.
