2. Multiple applications

When applying for a Waseda University Student Dormitory as your first choice, you may simultaneously apply for a WID or Waseda Recommended Dormitory as your second choice. (Other multiple application combinations are not permitted.)

Examples

The first choice is Waseda University Student Dormitory, and the second choice is a WID or Waseda Recommended Dormitory

Once accepted at a Waseda University Student Dormitory, you must enter that dormitory and cannot change to another dormitory for any reason. In that case, the WID or Waseda Recommended Dormitory that you simultaneously applied to will refund all entrance costs that you have already paid.

(If you have been on the waiting list of a Waseda University Student Dormitory and are accepted on or after March 19, any costs already paid will be refunded minus a cancellation fee. Cancellation fees are described in the documents for entry to WID or Waseda Recommended Dormitories.)

3. Q & A

  • Q. Is it allowed to head to the dorm directly from the airport?

  • Our dorms do not meet the criteria as a place for quarantine. Therefore, you are permitted to move in after the self-quarantine for 14 days (15 nights and 16 days).
  • Q. Do I have to complete the first payment even if it is still uncertain to enter Japan?

  • No, you don’t have to. We recommend making a payment when it’s turned out that you can surely come to Japan. Please do not rush to pay. There is no problem if you pay after you get a visa and book your flight.
  • Q. I already made the first payment from abroad. Do I need to follow the cancellation policy even if I’m not able to enter Japan due to the travel ban?

  • No, you don’t need to worry about it. Please contact us if you need to cancel your dorm application because of the travel ban, entry restriction, or cancellation of your study abroad program, we refund you the full amount. However, please forgive us that the remittance fee for the refund is deducted from your payment.
  • Q. What are Waseda University Student Dormitories and Waseda University Affiliated Dormitories?

  • Waseda University Student Dormitories are operated by Waseda University. These include Waseda International Student House (WISH) and Higashi-Fushimi Student Dormitory. The contract for residents and dormitories are concluded with Waseda University. Waseda University Affiliated Dormitories are operated by affiliated companies (companies in affiliated relationships with Waseda University). The contracts for these dormitories are concluded between the resident and each affiliated company.
  • Q. I hope to enter a dormitory. Tell me what I need to do.

  • You may apply for dormitories upon acceptance to the University. Both Waseda University Student Dormitories and Waseda University Affiliated Dormitories can be applied through the “Online Request Form” on the website of the Residence Life Center during the application period. “Online Request Form“ is opened on our website only during the application period.
  • Q. Is there anything that I need to consider before applying?

  • A life in a student dormitory is a community life and it is different from a life in your own home. Please understand a life that differs from the one of your homes will start after entering student dormitory. Students from all corners of Japan and the world live and study together. Please take it into consideration that living in a student dormitory is different from living alone before applying.(For example: Waseda International Student House (WISH))In principle, four (or three or two in some cases) people make one unit sharing one living room. The residents may hear living noise, etc. as rooms are fitted with vent holes for natural ventilation and this is a space for communal life. Thus, unit sessions are regularly carried out, to which all unit residents shall participate and discuss rules within the unit such as the volume. However, please note that living in WISH differs from living in an apartment or a condominium mansion and the residents may hear living noise.
  • Q. Tell me about “Multiple Applications”

  • When applying for Waseda University Student Dormitories (Waseda International Student House (WISH) and Higashi-Fushimi Student Dormitory) as your first choice, you may simultaneously apply for WID and Waseda Recommended Dormitories as your second choice (multiple applications for other combinations are not permitted). You are allowed to specify up to a 6th choice in WID and Waseda Recommended Dormitories, which will ensure that you will be accepted in one of WID and Waseda Recommended Dormitories if you were not accepted at Waseda University Student Dormitories of your first choice.
  • Q. Will there be screening?

  • For WID and Dormy, there will be no screening but the drawing of lots after the application is closed to allocate applicants to the dormitories.
  • Q. Tell me the time required to go to the Waseda campuses from the dormitories.

  • Refer to “Commuting time estimation to Campus” on page 4. Information (as of September 2020) on the 3-month train pass is also provided. For more information on access, check the page for each dormitory.
  • Q. Is the move-in dates designated?

  • After being accepted at a dormitory, the move-in dates are designated by the Residence Life Center and affiliated companies. As a rule, you are required to move-in the designated date.
  • Q. Can I visit the dormitories?

  • You can visit whenever you want, but please e-mail us “wid@dormy.co.jp” at least 2 days before your visit.
  • Q. Can I choose the contract period?

  • Yes, you can. Longer contracts are more economical in WID Nishi-Tokorozawa, WID Kodaira, WID Shimoigusa, and WID Waseda. There is no restriction on the frequency extension for undergraduate and graduate students while enrolling Waseda University.It is also possible to transfer to another dormitory within the contract period.
  • Q. I am planning to enter the School of International Liberal Studies. Is it possible for me to conclude 1.5 year contract?

  • Only students in the School of International Liberal Studies, which includes an overseas study program starting the summer of the second year for all students, may tie a 1.5-year contract with Waseda University International Dormitories (WID) and Dormitory Toritsu Kasei (only female). 1.5 years is considered a full term and deposits will be returned. Only half of the management fee will be charged for the second year.
  • Q. How are the residents selected?

  • Residents are selected on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please submit your application after being accepted at Waseda University. There are no application documents.
  • Q. How is the security at the dormitory?

  • All buildings are fully equipped with automatic door locks and 24-hour video recording cameras.
  • Q. Can I choose without meals option?

  • You can choose the “without meals” option depending on dormitories. Also, you can change with ⇔ without meals option only once within the contract period. If you will eat meals about a half of month, it is more economical to choose the “with meals” option.
  • Q. Is it possible for me to cook for myself on days meals are not served?

  • You may cook at the kitchen corner. Residents cook or eat out depending on their lifestyle.
  • Q. Are there hierarchical relations in the dorm?

  • No, there aren’t. All residents are good friends and the atmosphere is very homey. It is possible to maintain your privacy in your own room.
  • Q. Is it possible to apply for dormitories outside the Online Request Form acceptance period?

  • It is possible to make an application anytime for WID and Waseda Recommended Dormitories if there are vacancies. Please call and inquire.
