Contact your host as soon as you’ve been notified by the Housing Coordinator.
Ask them about what to bring (towels/pillows/sleeping bag/air mattress/etc.).
Your host will provide sleeping space and bathroom access. Meals are your responsibility unless otherwise arranged in advance.
Your host may or may NOT be able to transport you to and from events. Check with your host immediately regarding transportation options to and from the airport and/or Fleur de Lindy events. You may need to use public transportation or rent a car.
Learn and observe all home rules your host may have, including rules for your safety. (E.g. it may appear like a normal plant, but did you ever see Little Shop of Horrors?)
Take great care of your host’s home. During the event, as well as before you depart, please remember to clean up after yourself in the bathroom, kitchen and sleeping areas.
When you return to your host’s home each night, remember that others may be sleeping.
Always let your host know what your plans are and where to find you, trading mobile numbers when possible. They usually feel somewhat responsible for you, and want to make sure you are safe and having a good time.
Housing Etiquette for Hosts
Contact your guests as soon as you’ve been notified by the Housing Coordinator.
Inform your guests about what they should bring (towels, pillows, sleeping bags, air mattresses etc.).
All your guests expect is sleeping space and bathroom access. They’ll take care of their own meals. Although it isn’t required, many hosts provide breakfast stuff and snacks.
Let your guests know to what extent you can drive them around during the event.
Let your guests know your home rules and quirks, including what’s important for access and safety.
Let your guests know your schedule.
Always let your guests know what your plans are and where to find you, trading mobile numbers when possible. They may be alone in New Orleans and might be looking for you if a problem arises.
