There is No on-campus dormitory. Students must commute to Sophia from their housing.

Since the Sophia campus is located in the heart of Tokyo, the cost of living near campus is very high. As reasonable housing is located in the suburbs, exchange students should expect a 45-90 min. commuting time to campus. The train and subway systems in Tokyo are well-developed, but during the morning rush hours, the trains are very crowded.
Please check the commuting time of each dormitory carefully before making the decision of the housing preference.
