Housing Information

Housing is a necessity for life. Choosing the right environment is one of the most important factors in making your life at university a fulfilling one.
Rents in Hachioji City, Tokyo, where our university is located, are more reasonable than those in central Tokyo and the surrounding areas, creating an environment in which students can concentrate on their studies.
We recommend either nearby privately owned apartments (typically about 40,000 to 50,000 yen per month) or our student residences.

Cafeteria and shops

The community cafeteria is located in the Student Union building and offers a wide range of dishes, from buffets, to noodles, rice bowls, and curry and rice.
There are also seasonal menu items and special menus, so you will never get bored even if you use the cafeteria every day! Sections (booths) in the cafeteria service area are devoted to specific dining options such as “noodles,” “rice bowls and curry,” and “main menu items.”
At peak lunch times, there may be 1,000 users, so there are six cash registers. We offer original medicinal herb curry, salad with seasonal vegetables from the local farmers' market, and many more items!

Student Health Services

Staff members are always available to provide consultation on both the physical and mental aspects of your health. When a student comes to us, we arrange for them to contact the appropriate specialist. The health clinic is the first point of contact and arranges appointments for student counseling and medical consultation.
