Housing Requirements for Newly Accepted Students

All new students receiving visa sponsorship from TUJ are required to stay in housing arranged by the university during their first semester at TUJ. Japanese students and students who do not need visa sponsorship may also use TUJ housing, but space is limited and priority will be given to visa-sponsored students. After the first semester, students must vacate the dorm and find independent housing (non-TUJ dorm facilities, private apartments, etc.). It might be possible to remain in the dorm after the first semester through a private contract made directly with the dorm facility. TUJ cannot guarantee room availability and does not assist students with the contract process.

TUJ Housing Request Form

To apply for TUJ housing, including dorm or a homestay, you will need to submit a housing request form. Housing selection takes place closer to the start of each semester and the Office of Student Services will inform you of your housing assignment. A link to the online request form will be sent to you by email shortly after you are accepted to TUJ. Submission deadlines and move-in and move-out dates are also included on the form.
