Q. Can I work on campus?

Q. What is student housing like?

A. First-year engineering students will be given the opportunity to live in our International Student Dormitory, which is located on-campus right next to our South Engineering Building. Those who wish to live off-campus will find a wealth of private apartments a short walk, bicycle or subway ride away. The staff at KUAS will be happy to assist you in finding these apartments, and more information can be provided before your arrival in Japan upon request.  

Q. Are there any housing options other than the on-campus dormitory?

A. Kyoto is famous for being a college town, and there are many apartments, shared houses, and boarding houses to choose from outside of campus. If you do not wish to live on campus, you will need to find a place to live through a real estate agency, etc. KUAS will help you connect with these agencies. 

Q. Can I study in English at KUAS in faculties other than the Faculty of Engineering?

A. Not yet, although we do plan on introducing English-language programs in our other faculties in the near future. We will announce these new initiatives via our social media and home page, so please watch those sites for updates.
