Renting a Room Individually

Most students live in International House (I-House) or Takasone Dormitory C as long as there are rooms available. However, both domitories are for singles and it is not permissible to live there with your spouse or family. If you wish to live somewhere other than in those domitories (as in the case of living with your family), you are required to find an apartment by yourself, with the help of Japanese people such as your supervisor or Japanese students. KUT strongly recommends that you bring your family from your home country only after you have gotten accustomed to life in Japan (in most cases approximately after six months).
