Hall 1– It has single, couples and family rooms (¥ 5,900, ¥ 11,900, ¥ 14,200, per month respectively).
Hall 2– It also has single, couples and family rooms (¥ 4,700, ¥ 9,500 or ¥ 11,900, ¥ 14,200, per month respectively). Each floor has its kitchen, 2 washing machines, 2 dryers, and 2 showers to share for single room occupants. Rent is paid directly by bank transfer but the utilities’ bill is paid to the “Okaasan” after she posts the fees on a public board.
Hall 3- It only has single rooms (¥ 25,000/month). The rooms come fully equipped except for the washing machines which students have to share. You pay your rent and bills directly by bank transfer.
In each case, the student is responsible for utilities including water, electricity and gas. Internet is ¥6,000 every 6 months, paid directly to the Residence Hall office in first floor, Hall 3.
Utilities can be between ¥1,000 to ¥20,000 per month depending on the person. Most single room occupants pay less than ¥5,000 per month. For us, water is not paid every month, maybe every 2 to 3 months.
Each Residence hall has tutors to help incoming students with daily know-hows.
