Global Temple Conference

As a TUJ study abroad student, you will have the option to live in a dorm, reside with a Japanese family in a homestay, or find your own housing in Tokyo.  

Housing in Tokyo is guaranteed for all program participants who submit the housing form and a $200 non-refundable housing deposit by the deadline set for your particular semester.




Musashi-Kosugi Dorm 

  • Residence located in Kawasaki, Kanagawa. The area has many local stores and restaurants catering to college students. The Tokyu Line provides direct access to Shibuya and Yokohama, two shopping and entertainment centers in the Tokyo metropolitan area.
  • Commute time to TUJ is about 50 minutes using the Tokyu Line or JR Line
  • A standard single room is about 11.5 - 12 square meters and comes equipped with a bed, a private bathroom with a shower, a desk and a chair, an A/C unit, a refrigerator, and a closet. Bedding (pillow, blanket, and sheets) is provided, but towels are not.
  • Internet connection (Ethernet and WiFi) available in each room
  • The building has a cafeteria, a lounge, a garden terrace, multipurpose rooms, a fitness gym, a shared kitchen, and a laundry room with coin-operated machines.
  • TUJ Dorm Manager lives on-site

In the event that Musashi-Kosugi Dorm cannot accommodate all students, TUJ will utilize an overflow housing facility.


  • Available for selected students who are interested in complete linguistic and cultural immersion
  • Provides additional opportunities for language practice, as Japanese hosts do not necessarily speak any English
  • Private room in a Japanese home
  • Includes two meals per day
  • Usually located in one of many residential areas beyond center of Tokyo, so you will get to know local neighborhoods that the casual tourist never sees
  • Commute to campus is approximately one-and-a-half to two hours each way by public transportation (a common commute for those who go to school or work in central Tokyo)
  • Students requesting homestays will be interviewed by TUJ staff.

Program participants may also secure housing on their own.
