Dormitory Information

KUAS provides several dormitories that are perfect for international students to start their lives in Japan. The dorms are located on or near KUAS Uzumasa Campus making for a very convenient commute. Uzumasa Campus is a very convenient location, as it neighbors the local city office, a shopping mall, convenience stores, pharmacies, and various restaurants including halal or vegan options. It is also a very accessible location, so students can easily go to the city center and explore Kyoto's world heritage sites. 
Furthermore, the KUAS dormitories are international residences that house Japanese and international students together. Through this international exchange experience, students can deepen their understanding of other cultures and values and cultivate themselves into global, ethical professionals who are capable of tackling complex issues with expert knowledge, multidisciplinary insight, creative thinking and panoramic perspective.

For international students who do not wish to live in our dormitories, the KUAS International Office will introduce local, English-speaking real estate agents who can help international students find a place to live.

NOTE:
As a general rule, students may only live in the KUAS dormitories for the first two years* of their study at KUAS, after which they must seek housing off campus. (*subject to change)
