If I am interested, what are my first steps?
First, register on the website using your professional/academic information. To do a search, you may narrow your search depending upon what you are looking for (home or tenant). Be sure to contact potential host(s) when looking to make a match; besides being good etiquette, it will help both sides determine if this will be a good fit. Also be sure to read your host’s conditions, including cancellation policies, as it will save you potential misunderstandings later. Lastly, be sure to leave feedback about your match.
