Housing Services does not have the resources to match students with host families. However, there are specialist agencies that can do this.
This type of accommodation is popular with overseas students wishing to improve their English language skills and live as part of a family. The advantage of this kind of accommodation is that you do not have to commit yourself to a very long stay (often as little as two weeks), so if it isn't working you can end the arrangement fairly easily.
