With the aim of contributing to cultural development and international society, the International House was constructed through the cooperation of Waseda University and Waseda Hoshien Student Christian Center. A number of overseas researchers and international students at Waseda study and enjoy community life there. On the premises there is accommodation for overseas researchers and students as well as a dormitory for Japanese students. The Hoshien is in a sense a campus, serving as a place for cultural exchange, broadly open to the community and society, with facilities including a number of seminar houses. The accommodation for overseas researchers and students is convenient and comfortable: all units are furnished, including furniture, bedding, electric appliances and tableware, the location is very close to the university, and Hoshien staff provide complete support. New residents can live effectively from the first day of occupancy.
