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.
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.
From September 2022, NUCB International College - NIC - welcomed its first class of Year 10 students as an all-English boarding IB World School. The Nisshin campus has a new all-boarding international house, where students with IBDP or boarding experience and outstanding academic performance may be considered as house mentors.
