1. University's Accommodation
University accommodations are;
- International House
- Student Dormitory A, B, C, D, E, and F
International house with 40 single rooms and 10 family/couple rooms are designed for newly arrived international students, mainly for Japanese government (MEXT) scholarship students, short-term students from the partner universities.
Both Japanese students and international students can stay in the student dormitory A-F, and there are 595 single rooms in total. The application period for the student dormitory is in midsummer to fall every year.
Since capacities of both accommodations are limited, not all students are able to stay there. Especially, Self-financing research students cannot apply for the university accommodations.
Residents of International house must pay deposit and first month rent before move-in.
Both International House and Student Dormitories are well furnished; basically there are bed, desk, chair, shelf, drawer, and air-conditioner. Some rooms have small kitchen, toilet, and shower or bath-tab.

2. Renting a private apartment
Since the dormitories in the university are limited, most international students live in private-apartment near the university.
*Especially for those self-financed international students, there is high possibility that our university cannot provide any university's accommodation. They must make sure to find a room for first few days beforehand, (e.g. book a hotel) and find a room in Japan asking to agency or so.
Student Affairs Division renews the list of private apartment around the university in late October.
3. Public apartment
Public apartments have relatively low rents, but only a few rooms are available, and they are located a bit far from the university. Besides, you should have your family in Japan when you apply for it.
