Temporary Housing

If you have not already secured housing before your arrival here in Cleveland, we have both International and American volunteer families who have graciously opened their homes to host you and your family for a few days while you find your permanent accommodation. Our host/hostess can put you up temporarily for a maximum stay of 3-5 days. This will give you enough time to look for your own housing, whilst allowing you to put your bags in a safe place, shower and to sleep. Housing is aplenty around campus.

We are usually set up to host students for the Fall semester. If you need temporary housing during the summer and spring, please feel free to contact us too. We have limited hosts during summer and spring but will do our best to pair you up with a host you on a case by case basis.

Please specify that you would like “temporary housing” if this is a need for you. Again, two weeks’ notice is requested. Food and transportation is on your own. Our temporary housing volunteers are working people generally (unless they are students), and would not be available to bring you around to look for housing. However, these are people whom we have chosen because of their proximity to the campus or their accessibility to Case campus by public transportation.

Other housing options are available in and around the area close to Case. Be prepared to walk a lot and bring good walking shoes. Furnished or unfurnished apartment units are available. To jump-start your search for permanent housing near the Case campus, check out housing options under Case's off campus housing website that is updated every Friday.

Short Term (Several weeks to several months) and Long Term Housing

Several of our ISF friends and volunteers of many years have short term and long term housing options for rent. Please contact them for further information.
