FAQs

Frequently asked questions and answers about the Toshima International Hall of Residence

Applications
Q: What are the residential eligibility requirements for Toshima International Hall of Residence?

A: The Hall is open to undergraduates at third grade or above, postgraduates and research students. However, because the selection process places importance on financial difficulty, self-supporting students are prioritised over those who receive scholarships. Application periods are decided in accordance with the timing of enrollment and advancement. So, please pay attention to the information on applications on our homepages.


Q: Does the Hall require someone who acts as my guarantor?

A: No, it does not require any guarantor of a prospective resident.


Move
Q: Can I move in before my permitted term of residence starts?

A: No, you can’t. This is because the Hall needs to clean a number of rooms within the limited time between departures of previous residents and arrivals of new ones.


Q: Does the Hall accept unaccompanied goods to be delivered before I move in?

A: No. The Hall has no space to keep future residents’ belongings temporarily.


Q: Can I ask the University to open accounts with power and water providers?

A: Every new resident of A building must go through those procedures on their own. New
residents of B building don't need to do those procedures.


Q: Can I visit and see the Hall before I move in?

A: Yes. Please inform the Student Scholarship and Welfare Group of a few time slots convenient for you. Then, the Group will make arrangements with the Hall Office and come back to you with the schedule. When you visit the Hall, please show your ID to the office staff.


Room and Facilities
Q: Is there a parking area which residents can use to park their bicycles, motorbikes and/or cars? 

A: The Hall has a parking area for bicycles and motorbikes, but there is no space for cars. If you use a bicycle or a motorbike, you will have to register it with the lodge office.


Q: What is the bed size? Is there a mattress with the bed?

A: A building provides a single bed whose size is 94cm wide, 198cm long and 40cm high. If it is not long enough, please use a rest of the same height. Because there is no mattress, please purchase one together with other bedclothes after you move in. B building also provides a single bed but the size is under consideration for now.




Q: Can I use the Internet?

A: Yes, you can. If you are a new resident of A building, please refer to an instruction placed on top of the desk in your room (after you move in). New residents of B building can use the
Internet at the same time as their moving date.
