Accommodation at Kashiwa-no-ha International Village for International Students and Researchers on the Kashiwa campus

International students/researchers usually run into numerous difficulties in finding a place to live in Japan because of shiki-kin deposit costs (though refundable if no damage occurs), and some Japanese culture-specific customs such as reikin key money (non-refundable) and the guarantor system.

To avoid these matters, UTokyo arranges for some rooms at the Kashiwa-no-ha International Village (14 Fl. Mitsui Garden Hotel in front of Kashiwanoha-campus Station) for international students, and researchers of Kashiwa campus regardless of school or program affiliation.

※GSFS arranges for additional rooms exclusively for GSFS-affiliated international students and researchers.※
