Dormitories: Place where students study and practice Liberal Arts


The student dormitories of ICU are positioned as a place where students study and practice Liberal Arts. All dorms are located on the campus, richly endowed with nature, which brings a sense of the season. At the same time, their location is convenient for students to use the university facilities including the University Hall, Dining Hall and the Library.

The 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 total. Students from different background, having different characteristics, ways of thinking, languages, culture and religions live and study together in the dorms, and generally spend a fulfilling time enjoying the various events such as the Dormitory Festival.

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

The details of regulations of each dormitory, please visit Student Service Division's WEBSITE.
