Housing Facility Details
The UNO-Japan: Study at Doshisha University program participants will be housed in the brand new university housing facility near the campus where classes will be held. The facility, called the "Keishiryo," is a minimalistic, community student-housing dormitory for both Japanese and international students, and is about a 5 minute walk from campus.
Students will reside in a single room on the first floor which each including a bed, desk, closet, air conditioner, and wireless internet. Bedding sheets and pillow will be provided. Students are responsible for cleaning their own room and living room area. There will be a shared living room area outside the single bedrooms where there will be a shared refrigerator and space to hangout. Students can receive ordinary mail and will be delivered into the room's postbox settled right in front of the dorm's entrance. If it is a registered post, students are required to either receive the package in person at the entrance of the dorm or stay in the room during the time of delivery to receive it.
There are six bathrooms and two showers shared between the 20 students housed in this section of the dorm. There is also a shared Japanese-style bath (sento) available to use on the basement level floor where students can experience the Japanese bathing custom. Students will have access to a shared kitchen and TV in the community lounge and coin-operated laundry machines in the facility.
The dorm's curfew hours are strictly from 11:00pm to 6:30am, in consideration for the surrounding residential neighborhoods to prevent noise pollution. If students wish to go out earlier that 6:30am, they are advised to inform the dorm manager the day prior. In case of being unable to return to the dorm by 11:00pm due to an inevitable reason such as missing the bus or train delay, students are expected to let the dorm manager know as soon as possible.
