Housing Facilities

Accommodation is available for international students and scholars, on both a short and long term basis, in various housing facilities operated by Osaka University and by other organizations. While the room rents for these publicly managed facilities are inexpensive compared with those for private housing, the maximum duration of residence and the number of rooms at these publicly owned facilities are limited. International students and scholars or faculty can use the RRS to submit a web application to reserve a room in one of our dormitories. As well as online applications via the RRS, each department will advise students on accommodation availability via its student office. Housing should be requested and secured using the above methods as quickly as possible. If accommodation cannot be found, Housing Request service can be used to search for private housing and to deal directly with real estate companies to set up contracts for international students, scholars and faculty. Note that private housing is usually unfurnished. Furthermore, with private housing, you usually have to pay an additional fee as a deposit upon settling a lease agreement, which could be as much as three months rent.

* In general, “short term” refers to a period of 30 days or less, while “long term” refers to a period of one month or more.

International students must pay a monthly boarding fee of about 3,000yen to 8,000yen, depending on the company offering the boarding. In addition to the boarding fee, a welfare fee, meal expenses and utility charges must be paid monthly by each boarder. Applications are accepted around February each year for boarding starting in April, and each time a vacancy occurs. The international Student Affairs Division will make an announcement to each faculty/schools. Required documents are then prepared and submitted either by applicant themselves or by the person who is in charge of accepting international students.
