International exchange in Tottori Uni.

Accommodation for international students and researchers

Tottori University has established its "International House" as a facility designed principally to provide accommodation for newly arrived international students. The facility, located about 15 minutes (walking distance) from the campus, features a 5-story reinforced concrete building (single occupancy units) and a 3-story reinforced concrete building (units for couples and families). Generally speaking, occupancy periods are between one month and one year for students and between 14 days and one year for researchers.
However, since the International House has limited number of single rooms, students may be placed in double-occupancy or triple-occupancy rooms. Moreover, if the number of new students exceeds the capacity of the International House, students may be placed in the Shirahama Residence, which is a little bit old university staff house with Japanese style rooms rearranged for foreign students’ use.
