Student Governance

There is no resident manager at the dormitory. Student governance focuses on the Resident Assistant (RA) and the Student Assistant (SA)* on each floor, who support dorm residents while coordinating with the university faculty and staff on a daily basis. The international dormitory will evolve when residents actively work to improve and enhance dormitory life with the cooperation of all dormitory residents.

* What are the roles of the Resident Assistant (RA) and Student Assistant (SA)?
Think of the RAs as the head of their floor and the SAs as the head of their group.
The RAs check on the situation in each group on their floors. Periodically, they also communicate with the University office and arrange exchanges on their floors to make sure life in the dormitory runs smoothly.
The responsibilities of the SAs are rotated among the dorm residents. They check on groups of about five students and support them so that they feel comfortable with life in the dormitory. The SAs also help the RAs to organize exchanges on their floors. For more information about the RA and SA and to apply, please see the guidelines sent to you after completing the enrollment formalities.

Measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, etc.
At the request of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology and Hiroshima Prefecture, the University will conduct classes from April 2021 onward with the maximum caution, to prevent the spread of COVID-19 while securing learning opportunities for students.

Housing around campus

In addition to the dormitory, there are also housing in the area around the campus. Since the University does not act as an agent for accommodation, please contact real estate agencies directly. When signing a contract, be sure to check the state of the housing and the tenancy conditions to avoid any problems later.

International students also have the option of a private apartment or staying with a host family. If desired, the university can introduce students to Japanese host families. Please contact the university by email to inquire.
