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 International students and Japanese students. It is not only a place to live but also a community that encourages international exchanges.
Residents learn about the different cultures both Japanese and foreign countries through communication with other residents from all over the world, and they share what they learn here with others when they return home. We expect this dormitory to foster global engineers and scientists.
Common rooms/shared kitchen
Shared kitchen as a place to know cross culture
In SIT global dormitory, shared kitchen is well designed to experience what 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 on each floor. The kitchen is designed with efficiency in mind and is a perfect place for residents to introduce their local foods and recipes while cooking and having conversation with others.
