Osaka Housing and Student Life


The Kansai University International Dormitory is located about 15 minutes from the Senriyama campus (by bicycle or a combination of train and on foot).  Although primarily reserved for international students, some Japanese students also live in the dormitory to help international students as resident assistants.

All rooms are single occupancy. The dormitory is mixed-gender but males and females live on different floors.

Each room has a refrigerator, desk, chair, desk lamp, bookshelf, and closet.  Bedding is provided. On each floor, there are shared kitchens, shower rooms, washrooms, and toilets. The rooms come equipped with Internet (wired LAN) access and an air conditioner.

There are multipurpose and study rooms available for students to facilitate active interaction. There is no meal plan, so students must prepare their own meals or eat out.

The International Dormitory has a manager on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Student Life

In addition to classroom studies and formal program activities, students studying abroad at Kansai University are also encouraged to take part in club or social activities on campus. Japanese college students invest tremendous amounts of their time in extracurricular activities. Most students are involved in at least one or two clubs, which can be either cultural or athletic in nature. Taking part in a club is one of the best ways to learn how the Japanese have fun.
