Full-time, regular course international students are eligible to live in the on-campus dormitories during the standard period for the master's and doctoral programs.* Dormitory rooms are priced far below usual housing options and, due to their on-campus location, allow students to devote themselves to their studies and research.
* We can introduce some local accommodations to non-regular international students.
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.
