About Gender-Neutral Floors
Although the living floors of Mitaka International Student House are basically separated for men and women, a part of the floors have been changed to gender-neutral floors from FY2024. Gender-neutral floors are residential floors where anyone can move in regardless of the gender on various official certificates (*).  If you wish to apply for a gender-neutral floor, please indicate in the remarks column that you wish to move into a gender-neutral floor of Mitaka International Student House when you apply at OSTA. If not stated, in principle, selection will be made based on the gender applied for at OSTA.

(*) Various official certificates: passports, birth certificates, etc.
