An Integral Part of the NUCB Experience

International Dormitories

NUCB offers dormitories where both Japanese and international students reside - fostering an international community both on and off-campus. At NUCB, we consider living together with students from other cultural backgrounds to be a critical part of the international experience - Students with diverse social, linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds, personalities and ways of thinking live in the dormitories.

Our objective is not only to provide an optimal learning environment but to give an experience of a lifetime to build lifelong friendships and interact with people from diverse cultures on a daily basis making your time here unforgettable. Students can move into dormitories when they enroll in April or September and stay for all 4-years, including winter and summer breaks. Our international affairs department provides a check-in for all students to acclimatize to their new environment.

The majority of our students choose the single room option but there are opportunities to share. Please contact the admissions department if you have a preference.

Resident Assistant

Capable of speaking both Japanese and English, the RA's will provide support for the international students in the dormitories, holding networking and cultural activities and events, involving the students in the NUCB Community. This will provide the international students with opportunities to deepen their understanding of Japanese language and culture while fostering deeper and broader connections with their peers.

International House

From September 2022, NUCB International College - NIC - an all-English boarding IB World School will begin its first intake of Year 10 students. At the main Nisshin campus, a brand new boarding site will open (International House) where Global BBA students will also be eligible to stay. Those who have IBDP or boarding experience or those with exceptional academic records may be considered to be house mentors.
