You can choose to stay with a Japanese family (Homestay), or in a dormitory.

  • The homestay option offers profound insight into the typical Japanese family and the ability to practice your Japanese skills.
  • The dorm is ideal for students who desire greater freedom and independence.
  • There are a limited number of host families available each term. Sometimes, we are unable to satisfy the demand. In this case, students will be automatically switched to the dormitory housing option

Expect living arrangements to be more restrictive than in the U.S. Both dormitories and homestay families have curfews—usually midnight.

Both dorm and homestay students receive a local transportation pass between lodging and school. The pass, included in the program cost, is for use on days when class is in session.

While KCP's website states students can live independently while at KCP, the ISU Study Abroad Office policy requires that students live in dorms or in a homestay.
