● Students who are Eligible to Apply for a KGU-Arranged Accommodation
An incoming exchange student who qualifies for a KGU-arranged accommodation can apply for one of the two following options: Dormitory or Homestay. The application process will be organized by the KGU Residence Center. Find more details about the accommodation options they offer on the page below.
※About KGU-Arranged Homestays: The number of homestays available is very limited and KGU requires that all participants (students and adult family members) provide a COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate upon submitting their Accommodation Request/Host Family Application. ※About KGU-Arranged Dormitories: While not required to apply for a dormitory, we strongly recommend you make sure to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated by the time of arrival to Japan.

Due to severe limitations in accommodations availability, a large number of applicants will have to arrange for a "Self-Arranged Accommodation". We have prepared a quick guide on how to find a suitable accommodation in Japan for your reference. The guide includes links to real-estate agencies and share-houses. We strongly encourage you refer to it before starting to search for your accommodation. The list is updated regularly.
