"I loved the intimate size of the group. We became a sort of family in a sense." - 2012 Program Participant

Housing Facility Details:

Students will reside in a Doshisha University housing facility set aside for international visitors (see pictures below). This is a relatively new facility with hotel-style rooms. Rooms are private, with bed, desk, bathroom and storage areas. High-speed internet access is available in the dorm rooms, but students must bring their own LAN cable. There is a shared kitchen and coin laundry available to students. There are also workout and pool facilities available to students (and members of the outside community) for a fee of 800 Japanese yen per day.

The facility is located near the Doshisha Imadegawa campus, where classes will be held. It is about a 10-15 minute walk.

Students may not have mail sent prior to the start of the program, but it is likely that they will be able to receive mail once the program has started. Please check with the program administration prior to mailing anything.
