Momi House, Maple House
In April 2017, ICU celebrated the opening of the 13th and 14th student dormitories constructed in the over 60 year history of ICU dormitories. ICU dormitories, which have provided accommodations for some 5,000 students, boast their know-how of dorm management and culture of generosity fostered in their history. Students will learn to respect diversity and human rights and to share responsibilities and duties through dialogue while living together with friends from around the world. The residents can hold study sessions and develop dormitory-based projects together with commuting students and alumni. Momi House and Maple House will be innovative living-learning communities with boundless possibilities leading to society.

Six Seminar Rooms and a Common Living and Dining Area
The two dormitory buildings are connected at the first-floor level, allowing ample space for six seminar rooms and a common living and dining area named Wisteria Hall. These spaces are open to commuting students and faculty for learning and community activities such as lectures, study sessions, the mochi (rice cake) making party (one of the traditional events of educational dormitories), international cooking parties and watching sporting events. An intellectual learning community that transcends affiliations, generations, age and nationalities is being created in these new dorms.
A Community Proactively Managed by its 32 Residents
The second floor and above are residential areas with 32 residents per floor, each an "autonomous cooperative community" 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 senior students who need to concentrate on their senior theses and job search. Some higher floors mainly have single rooms to accommodate graduate students and students with diverse needs.
A spacious common area, consisting of a social room where 32 residents get together, a kitchen and dining room, study rooms, shower rooms and laundries, is located at the center of each floor. One purpose of this common area is to encourage natural dialogue between dormitory residents. Through a communal life and daily dialogue, it is expected that Japanese and international students with diverse cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds, different personalities and ways of thinking will broaden their perspectives and develop their potential.
