Housing and dormitories for international students

Sophia University is located in the heart of Tokyo, and like most urban universities in Japan, our students commute to campus. While the university has no on-campus housing, students can chose between living in central Tokyo near the university and a more economical housing located in the suburbs.
For more information, please see below.

Part-time job

International students holding "College Student" status of residence may be permitted to engage in jobs up to 28 hours a week.

Student Life

Outside the classroom, Sophia students usually join at least one of the hundreds of extra-curricular organizations on campus. Clubs and circles offer opportunities to join with other students who share a common interest in everything from sports, to music, volunteer activities, cultural performances, current social issues, etc. The Global Network, established by students interested in exchange between international and Japanese students, sponsors lunch-time discussions, home visits and cultural activities. And, of course, Sophia students take advantage of the rich cultural offerings of the city of Tokyo. Most major museums, sports and cultural venues are within easy commuting distance from our campus.
