Wherever you are, it is always nice to have somewhere you can call home. Dokkyo University wants to ensure that its exchange students feel at home here in Japan, so it guarantees accommodation. Information on housing applications is provided in a timely manner.

Dokkyo University provides off-campus housing for exchange students, who will be required to live there during their term of study at Dokkyo University.

Depending on the area and the size of the room, the rent varies from 58,000 yen to 70,000 yen per month, which includes utilities and Wi-Fi internet access. Meals are not included.

You will share a three-bedroom apartment with two other roommates.

    This fee covers the provision of a room cleaning service by a cleaning company when you move out and the provision of maintenance service by an apartment management company. This fee is non-refundable and paid only when you move in.
    You will need to pay this fee together with your rent for the first month (pro-ranted) and the following month in cash at a convenience store using the Smart Pit payment service.
