Momi House, Maple House

Momi House, Maple House


The 13th and 14th student dormitories in the 62-year history of ICU opened in April 2017. Management of the new dorms will be firmly rooted in a long tradition of residential life and ICU dormitory culture, fostered by the approximately 5,000 ICU students who have lived in dormitories since ICU's founding. Students will learn to respect diversity and human rights through dialogue and sharing responsibilities while living together with friends from around the world. The residents will develop dormitory-based projects together with commuting students and alumni. Momi House and Maple House will be innovative living-learning communities connected to society.

6 Seminar Rooms and a Common Living and Dining Area

The two dormitories will be equipped with 6 seminar rooms and a common living and dining area on the spacious first floor. These spaces will be open to commuting students and faculty for learning and community activities such as lectures, study sessions, mochi(rice cake) making, and international cooking parties. An intellectual learning community that transcends affiliations, generations, age and nationalities will be fostered in these new dorms.

A Proactive Community of 32 Residents per Floor

The second floor and above are residential areas with 32 residents per floor, consisting of eight students from each year. Each floor has 12 double-occupancy rooms for first to third year students, and 8 single rooms for seniors who need to concentrate on their graduation theses and job search. There are more double-occupancy rooms than single rooms based on students' feedback that sharing a room is the best part of dorm life. Some higher floors will mainly have single rooms to accommodate graduate students and students with diverse needs.

A spacious common area including a kitchen, living room, study rooms, showers and laundry rooms is located at the center of each floor. This is to encourage Japanese students and international students with diverse cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds as well as personalities and ways of thinking to interact on a daily basis.
