Room and board describes a situation where, in exchange for money, labor or other considerations, a person is provided with a place to live as well as meals on a comprehensive basis.

"Board" may refer to the table on which food is served.

It also occurs in hotel-style accommodation for short stays.

With a room and board arrangement, the renter has a private bedroom and shares the rest of the house with the person renting out the room. This is different from renting where the renter has private living areas, including a bedroom, bathroom and kitchen

Two commonly encountered boards are:

  • Half Board, where the host provides only a breakfast and dinner meals.
  • Full Board, where the host provides all three daily meals.
  • Another option is:

  • Bed and breakfast, literally, a place to sleep and where breakfast is provided.
