Meiji Gakuin University will arrange housing in their international student dorm before you arrive on campus. You are required to live in the dorms, however, should they reach full capacity, students will be asked to make their own housing arrangements. 

You will also have the option to participate in a weekend long homestay, a great opportunity to experience local Japanese daily life. 


The dorm is located in Totsuka, a quite residential district with easy access to the Yokohama campus. The rooms are single occupancy and include a shower, toilet, and small kitchenette. You will also have access to a shared dining hall and common area. Social events and athletic competitions between dorms is common.
