Live Locally, Grow Globally


Faculty Dormitories

Note: OU translation guidelines recommend use of the word "dormitory" in the following. However, current and potential faculty members might note that "apartment" is probably more appropriate, especially in the case of the facilities and units for families.

Osaka University has a number of dormitories for full-time faculty members.

These dormitories are only available for full-time faculty members (including full-time specially appointed faculty members).

The dormitories are primarily an option for faculty members with dependents and/or faculty members posted at Osaka University away from their families.

Faculty members interested in living in one of the dormitories are requested to download this Application FormExcel mini icon. After filling it out, please send it by email to Osaka University Staff Dormitories, Housing Division. Note: For the application form, you will need to know information such as your official job title, your salary step, etc. Please contact the school hiring you regarding such details, not the Housing Division.
