Living in New Orleans

All undergraduate students requiring housing while in New Orleans participate in homestays—living with a local family in one of the most socioeconomically and demographically diverse neighborhoods in the city. Homestays enrich the young, aspiring teacher’s understanding of the vibrant community in which they are working.

Host families include active members of the community who are dedicated to the growth of Broadmoor. They are families who have witnessed the sus¬tained impact that undergraduate students have had upon their community’s revitalization. Homestays afford students a unique vantage point for under¬standing local history and heritage. Throughout the summer students attend mu¬sic festivals, block parties, readings by local authors and art openings. Additionally, parks, farmer’s markets, restaurants, shops and music clubs are all within reach from Broadmoor.

The homestay matching process allows students various options regarding living accommodations. All living arrangements are comfortable and students receive a weekly meal stipend. Transportation arrangements are available.
