A notification that dormitory application guidelines are available will be posted on the bulletin board in front of the Student Services Building around January. Students who would like to live in a dormitory must submit an application form by the stipulated deadline. Student housing is university housing in which students from other areas of Japan gather, and international student housing is where many international students live. They are also places to gain the ability to maintain your personal life in the context of group living, and to make new friends.
Although Ochanomizu University’s international student housing facilities are intended for students who live away from home, students who do not meet the normal conditions may be authorized to move in when the University has judged that the student has an urgent need. “Urgent need” refers to situations such as the following.
