Housing

Nagoya University operates one mixed Japanese/international student dormitory, International Ohmeikan, and four dormitories used exclusively by international students: International Residence Higashiyama, International Residence Yamate North & South, and Foreign Students House. Unless correspondence to the contrary has been exchanged, all NUPACE students will live in one of these university dormitories, although they do not have the option of choosing in which residence they will reside. Further information on your dormitory (dorm name, room number and access) will be provided in late March by e-mail.

International Residence Higashiyama is located on-campus, and International Residence Yamate and International Ohmeikan are approximately 10 minutes´ walk from Nagoya University´s main campus (see below for details). Foreign Students House, although off-campus, is easily accessible by bus or bicycle.

There are no university-managed canteens in any of the residences and, as such, students should bear in mind that they will have to cater for themselves or eat out.
Please be noticed that visitors are not allowed to stay overnight.

Residents must pay monthly rent in full even if residing for only one day of a particular month. Rent cannot be calculated on a per day basis. Please also note that the monthly residential fees (including the bedding lease fee) will NOT be waived or refunded during a period of absence.
