Housing

Summer Program students are assigned double rooms in Komachi Residence Hall (Komachi Residence Hall is being renovated and will be completed in April 2023. The updated image photo(s) of the new Komachi Residence Hall will be available on this page when it is ready.) Each student will have a chance to have a Japanese roommate and/or suitemate(s): a roommate is a student who shares a room and a bathroom, and a suitemate is a student who shares only a bathroom.

Specific room assignments and information about your roommate/ suitemate(s) will be announced upon your arrival. We are not able to provide the information such as name, nationality, and contact address of your roommate/ suitemate(s) in advance. We are not able to offer single rooms except in special circumstances because of limited room availability.
