Student Dormitories

Student Dormitories

Iwate University has four student dormitories in the Ueda area (on campus) and the Takamatsu area (approximately 2 km from the university) as detailed below. All dormitories are mixed, with international students living with Japanese students, and as they are managed by the students who live there, they cultivate independence, sociality, and an international outlook through communal life, in contrast to living alone such as in an apartment. The following is an overview of the student dormitories:
