Tohoku University provides two types of dormitories: "International House" for international students and scholars, and "University House" for both international students and Japanese students. Dormitory requirements differ depending on the type of dormitory, so please refer to the guideline linked on this page during the application period.


The application period is twice a year:

January for those who wish to move in at the end of March.

July for those who wish to move in at the end of September.


Contacts: GSIS Educational Affairs Section < >

Application Deadline:January 18, 2023

* Application must be submitted via email only to the GSIS Educational Affairs Section < >


We are now accepting applications from international students for the university dormitory 2023 April period.
Please fill out the application forms and submit them to the GSIS Educational Affairs Section by Wednesday, the 18th of January.


International students who have enrolled in the October 2022 term but have not yet arrived in Japan do not need to apply for an extension, as we will set a move-in period and grant permission to move in once those have arrived in Japan.
From this time on, we will not be accepting new applications for University House Katahira.
