Sophia University has several off-campus dormitories and offers affiliated housing options. For inquiries and application, contact the dormitory/organization directly. 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, students should expect a 30-90 min. commuting time to campus.
Different student supports are available at Sophia.
Tuitions and Fees

A student’s dedication to their studies, their duty at university, comes from their own motivation and a financial base. However, the reality is that various circumstances (the student’s family environment or social environment) can create barriers, making it difficult for some students to continue their studies despite tremendous motivation. We have established our scholarship system to give these students our greatest support. Sophia University offers two main types of scholarships: scholarships for students showing an excellent academic performance and scholarships for students experiencing financial hardship that makes it difficult for them to continue their studies. There are a particularly large number of scholarships in the latter category. This guide provides detailed information on all of Sophia University’s scholarships, so that you can apply for the scholarships that are right for you. If you are unsure of anything or have any questions, feel free to ask somebody at the Financial Support Department of the Center for Student Affairs. We hope that our scholarship system can help more students to continue their studies and to lead a cheerful and fulfilling university life.
