Student Dormitories

All international students are eligible to live in campus dormitories. The Student Dormitories are comprised of 619 rooms. To support students' research work on a 24-hour basis, LAN access is provided from the dormitories, allowing access to university networks, including the university's Digital Library, as well as national and international scientific research institutions.

Selection of Residents

Dormitory resident selection is based primarily on entrance examination results. However, other factors are also taken into consideration, such as the relative commuting distances to school from students' family homes.
