Designated Housings (Dormitory) 

  • (1) To secure impartiality, students are NOT allowed to choose which dormitory to stay.
    HOSEI will randomly assign the dormitories for ESOP students.

(2) Since the rent is reasonable and Hosei University can provide quick support in the emergency situation, we strongly recommend every student to stay in the dorm.
