Housing

Nagoya University operates two mixed Japanese/international student dormitories, International Ohmeikan, International Residence-Daiko, and three dormitories used exclusively by international students: International Residence Higashiyama, International Residence Yamate. Unless correspondence to the contrary has been exchanged, all NUPACE students will live in one of these university dormitories, although they do not have the option of choosing in which residence they will reside. Further information on accommodation arrangements, including your address, will be provided in early March/August by e-mail.

International Residence-Higashiyama is located on Higashiyama campus, and International Residence-Yamate and International Ohmeikan are within easy walking distance (See below for details).Access to the campus from International Residence-Daiko, which opened in April 2019 on Daiko campus, takes approximately 20 minutes by subway.

Currently, there are no university-managed canteens in any of the residences and, as such, students should bear in mind that they will have to cater for themselves or eat out. Convenience stores, which open 24 hours a day, 356 days a year, are located within a short walking distance from each dormitory.

Residents must pay monthly rent in full, even if residing in university accommodation for only one day of a particular month. Rent cannot be calculated on a per day basis. Please also note that monthly residential fees (including the bedding lease fee) will NOT be waived or refunded during a period of absence. Half a months' room fee will be charged if you quarantine yourself at a university dormitory in late March.
