For students at Yamasa, there are a number of options in Student Housing as well as the a Program. Not only is it possible to choose from a wide range of options, it is also possible to choose a combination of options, all of which are carefully managed by our full time Housing Office staff. To view each of the housing options currently available please click on the links below for full details of facilities, floor plans, maps, photographs and video:

The newest accommodation at Yamasa, opened in 2006. This 11 room dormitory has the closest single room accommodation available to the campus for female students.
Accommodation for families/Special/Alternative Accommodations
For students with families, we will usually accommodate you in apartments such as Yamasa Villa 1, Residence K or Residence L, or the guestroom at Yamasa Villa 4 (Room 109), since these apartments have separate rooms for the toilet and shower. For families and others with special needs, alternative private rental accomodation may also be arranged if preferred. Please note that for external accommodation (ie accommodation not owned by the Institute) we need to contract for a minimum of 6 months, and pay reikin/shikikin which usually costs about 4-6 months of rent. For external accommodation, we request at least 3 months notice. If insufficient notice is given, you would normally be accommodated in Yamasa Villa 1, Residence K or Residence L.
In recent years, there has been a gradual shift amongst Yamasa students to single accommodation.
Yamasa often rents
Off campus accommodation from outside realtors during peak seasons, or when demand for single
apartments reduces overall capacity. This is usually done at a loss. To rent a small 1K studio apartment from vendors such as
"Leo Palace" costs about 96,000-108,000 yen per month in Okazaki, but the student pays the same fee as for rooms in our
student housing. An example of
an off-campus room would be those in the building called
Wakamatsu apartments - 1K studio apartments near Minami Park.
Yamasa's programs are not residential, and some students commute by train or bus from elsewhere in the city, or from Nagoya or Toyohashi. If you are interested in renting your own apartment (usually contracts are for 2 years), the Housing Office can provide you with translation assistance with your documentation on request. Please note that while Yamasa can provide assistance in this regard, we are not able to act as the guarantor.
For transport to other areas of the city or for weekend and holiday travel, there are bus stops located close to all of the accommodation options and the station (JR Okazaki Station on the main Tokaido line between Tokyo and Osaka) is a short bicycle ride away.
