Living in a Dormitory

The University runs two off-campus facilities, the Nagoya Kōryū Kaikan and the Yamazato Kōryū Kaikan, which are international halls of residence open to all Nanzan students. The halls were founded to promote international understanding and cooperation through a livein experience. Demand for this accommodation increases every year, making competition for openings very tight.

Student Voice

Nagoya Kōryū Kaikan

Located a few meters away from the University’s main entrance, the hall can accommodate a maximum of 56 students in its 14 apartments. Each apartment can accommodate four students: one Japanese student from one of Nanzan’s graduate or undergraduate programs and three international students. Students have separate rooms furnished with a bed, study desk with lamp and bookshelves, chair, locker, telephone, and an air conditioner and heater. The occupants share a common toilet and bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. The monthly fee, including utilities, is ¥30,000.

Yamazato Kōryū Kaikan

Located a short distance from the University, the hall can accommodate 20 international and Japanese students in private rooms, with the male and female students on separate floors. Each room is equipped with a bed, closet, toilet, sink, study desk with lamp and bookshelves, chair, and an air conditioner and heater. There are no bathing facilities in the private rooms, but there is a common bathroom on each floor. Similarly, cooking facilities are available for sharing. The monthly fee, including utilities, is ¥30,000.

Other Dormitory Options

Through the generosity of local business and international organizations, Nanzan is able to place students in a number of privately managed dormitories in the local area. Some of the dormitories are specifically designed for students. Each dormitory is unique, but in all cases students are expected to adapt to the one they are placed in and abide by its rules and regulations.

The monthly fee for a dormitory depends on a number of factors: facilities provided (such as air conditioning in the summer and heating in the winter); private telephones; the cost of utilities; and the number of meals provided.
