The International House dormitory was established to enhance students' study and cross-cultural exchange experiences through sharing of accomodation and everyday life with fellow students from around the world. Various events are organised by students throughout the year including welcome and farewell parties, tanabata parties, Christmas parties, birthday parties, dance parties, a stall for the annual university festival, cooking classes, and communal dinners. Students also participate in events run in conjunction with Kyoto City and other universities in the city. In recent years, groups have travelled to the Sapporo Ice Festival and other events around Japan during vacation times.
