Living/studying together and sharing opinions – this place is a “window” to the world
SIT Global Dormitory opened on the Omiya Campus in April 2013.
This is a dormitory for students from other areas of Japan as well as those from foreign countries. It not only is a place to live but also a space that encourages international exchanges.
Residents learn about the different cultures both within and outside Japan through communication with other residents, and they share what they learn here with others when they return home. We expect this dormitory to foster much goodwill and understanding.
Common rooms/shared kitchen
Learning about different foods and cultures in the communication space located in the middle of each floor (2nd through 5th floor)
Everyone must “eat” in order to live. Such day-to-day activity varies surprisingly depending on a person’s nationality, race, religion and customs. Through use of a shared kitchen, residents can discover different foods/meals as well as cultures that they normally would not be exposed to unless they have traveled extensively.
A shared kitchen is located in the common room located on each floor. The kitchen is designed with efficiency in mind and is a perfect place for residents to introduce others to their local foods and recipes while cooking and having conversation with others.
Life in a dormitory
Comfortable private space with emphasis on independence
While the dormitory offers public spaces to promote communication with others, it also ensures the privacy of each resident to enable them to switch their "On" and "Off" time. Each private room is approximately 17 square meters and is equipped with a modular bathroom with a toilet with a warm-water bidet, bed, desk and LAN access, convenience and comfort for studying and hobbies
A supervisory staff is always available to respond to needs of residents.
Resident Adviser / Senior Student
In addition to the supervisory staff, two senior students reside on each floor of this dormitory. Residents are free to consult with these senior students with regard to living in the dormitory and/or college life.
