Accommodations and Life in Kashiwa

UTSIP Kashiwa participants are to be housed in a university dormitory. Participants must check in the designated accommodation one day before the program starting date, and check out one day after the final day of the program. Each participant will receive housing information about one month before the program starting date.

Please note that some participants may have to move to another accommodation in the midst of the program because the annual accommodation situation makes arranging one location for the entire period difficult year by year.
