The International House, located just a few minutes walk from campus, is central to the life and experiences of exchange and YAP students at KSU. In addition to international exchanges shared through day to day living in the I House, various events are also organized by student residents throughout the year. These include welcome and farewell parties, seasonal events, birthday parties and other events that students wish to offer.
The I-House is primarily accommodation for incoming exchange students. Other students and visitors to the University may also enter subject to availability.
On the ground floor there is a spacious lobby used for social events, a Japanese tatami room and free study space. On the 2nd to 4th floors are rooms, communal living areas with wifi, communal kitchens and a laundry room.
*Due to Covid 19 and as a measure to provide as safe a living environment for students as possible, we have had no choice but to make all student resident rooms single only. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause students who would prefer the experience of a shared room.
Single rooms are fitted with a unit bathroom, air-conditioning, telephone (incoming only), kitchenette with refrigerator, a desk, study chair, single bed, closet, and drawers.
Family rooms are equipped with a unit bathroom, air-conditioning, telephone(incoming only), clothes washing and drying machines, kitchen, large refrigerator, electric range, microwave oven, table, chairs, sofa, desk and study chair, two single beds, closets, and drawers.
All rooms in the I-House enjoy a sunny south-west perspective with large private balconies.
Please note: *The International House and surrounding grounds are a smoke free zone. Smoking in any form, including vaping, is strictly prohibited.
KSU will provide a 10,000yen reduction in rent to incoming exchange students resident in the I House during the first two semesters after admission of exchange students resumes. From the third semester after admissions resume, rent for all residents will return to those fees shown in the table below.
