In accordance with Temple University policies, all TUJ facilities including the dorms and homestay are no-smoking and no-alcohol. A dorm manual with explanations on other rules and policies is distributed at the mandatory dorm orientation.

Homestay

TUJ offers a limited number of homestays with Japanese families for international students. This is a good option for students who wish to become more immersed in Japanese culture and language. In order to make the best of this experience, students will be expected to adjust to the host family's living arrangement, "live locally," eat a Japanese diet with the host family, participate in Japanese family life, and spend meaningful time with the family. Preference for selection will be given to students who demonstrate cultural sensitivity, flexibility, and a genuine interest and commitment to Japanese culture by speaking Japanese and abiding by Japanese values and customs.
