Housing Application

An Integral Part of the AIU Experience

AIU requires all short-term international students to live in on-campus housing.

Living together with other exchange students from partner institutions in 50 countries and territories, as well as Japanese students, teaches more about intercultural cooperation and understanding than any classroom or textbook possibly could.

Housing Application

Students apply for housing through the Online Application Portal after acceptance to AIU.

Themed Houses: Students who wish to live in one of the Themed Houses must submit a separate application by email. Information on available Themed Houses and the application process will be sent to all accepted students.

Before submitting the Housing Application online, be sure to review all the details about the housing, including costs, availability dates, and considerations for shared housing on the Housing page as well as information on Room Assignments below.

Housing Costs

Please refer to the Rent and Fees (per Semester) section on the Housing page.

Room Assignments

Students may express a room preference on the Housing Application Form. However, final room and roommate assignments will be made solely by AIU. Although AIU will consider student housing preferences and other information carefully, we cannot always meet students’ requests. Please understand that AIU cannot respond to requests for specific roommates, nor reply to case-by-case inquiries in advance.

Special Arrangements & Support

Students who need special arrangements or a particular room assignment because of special circumstances (physical or medical condition, etc.) must request that in advance and supply an official document, such as medical doctor’s report, to verify their condition. For more information, please refer to the Special Accommodations page.

Housing Availability Dates

Please refer to the Housing Availability Dates section on the Housing page.

Considerations for Shared Housing

Please refer to the Considerations for Shared Housing section on the Housing page.
