Now Accepting Applications from First-Year Students for Dormitory Entry in October

 

Contents of This Page

The university established dormitories to provide students with a good living and studying environment and to contribute to a fulfilling student lifestyle through community living. Keyaki Dormitory buildings 1 to 3 were built on land adjacent to the Koganei Campus between 1966 and 1967. Building 0 (now the Sakura Dorm) of the Keyaki Dormitory was built in 1972, and the Kaede Dormitory (a women’s dorm) was built on land adjacent to the Fuchu Campus in 1986. Over forty years after it was built, the Keyaki Dormitory had aged to the point where the university stopped accepting applications for new residents for it in September 2007. The dormitory was subsequently fully renovated and reopened in March 2010.
This included the creation of the new 200-room Keyaki Dormitory for men and the 18-room Sakura Dormitory for women. The Hinoki Dormitory—with 75 rooms for men on the first to third floors and 36 rooms for women on the fourth and fifth floors—was completed on land adjacent to the Fuchu Campus in August 2016. Students are encouraged to apply for residency in the dorms.


Dormitory eligibility: Students at the university (including international students) facing great economic difficulty. (The Sakura Dormitory is only available to Japanese students.)
Note: The dormitories are available to Japanese students who face great economic difficulty and have trouble commuting to school because they live far away (their family residence is two or more hours away).

Selection of applicants: Dorm residents are selected on the basis of their residence applications according to separately specified selection criteria, and approved by the vice president after committee deliberation.

Residency period: Each dormitory has its own residency period rules, so contact the specific dormitory for more information.

The facilities, equipment and other details of each dormitory are listed below.

Management: Managed by an association of the dorm’s residents Please follow the rules set by the association. Please also communicate with other dormitory residents and participate in events and other activities the association organizes.

Message from the Dormitory President
Kaede Dormitory residents manage the dormitory themselves as an association. The association holds many fun events, such as a welcome party for new residents, a dormitory festival, a construction anniversary festival, and a farewell party for graduates. Since it is a self-managed dormitory, residents take turns cleaning, participate in dorm meetings, and serve on management committees. Group living has its challenges, but residents build bonds that transcend departments and years at the university and live exciting lives together.
You are encouraged to visit us for a tour. If you would like more information, please get the “Guide to Kaede Dormitory,” which is available from the Student Support Section of the Student Support Office.
