Dormitories: A Place Where Students Study and Practice Liberal Arts


The student dormitories at ICU are place where students study and practice Liberal Arts. All dorms are located on campus, surrounded by nature, which brings a sense of the season. They are conveniently located near facilities such as the University Hall, dining hall and the library.

Students living in the dorms include those from overseas as well as from Japan. Some 600 students live on campus, which is about 20% of the total. Students with diverse cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking live and study together. They spend a fulfilling time, sometimes participating in events such as the Dormitory Festival.

In principle, students move into dorms in April and September when they enroll and stay for 10 months a year, excluding the two month-long summer vacation (July and August).

Please visit the Student Service Division's WEBSITE to see regulations of each dormitory.
