Kyoto University has five accommodation facilities available for international students and researchers, located in the Shugakuin, Yoshida, Uji, Ohbaku and Misasagi (for students only) areas of Kyoto.
In addition to these five accommodation facilities, two facilities located in the Okazaki and Hyakumanben (for students only) areas will newly open in October 2019.
International students at Kyoto University can also stay at other accommodation facilities provided by external parties with which Kyoto University has a leasing agreement.
(Such facilities are also occupied by international and domestic students attending other universities. The lease contract will be made through the International Service Office.)
International students who will enroll at Kyoto University within one year of their arrival in Japan are eligible to apply.
The move-in periods are April and October. Applications are accepted in January and July (three months prior to the desired move-in period).
＜Temporary Application (Outside of regular application periods)＞
Applications for short-term stays will only be accepted if there is a vacancy. Please check our website and apply through the application system.
Applications must be made on the researcher’s behalf by their host professor or an appropriate staff member of their faculty/department of affiliation. Please note that if the number of applicants exceeds the number of available units, successful applicants will be decided by lottery.
