②Residence Priority International Students(such as Japanese Government (MEXT) Scholarship holders)

Applicable international students have priority in securing residence accommodation and will be assigned rooms if the number of rooms is sufficient. If the number of the residents exceeds the number of the vacancies, a lottery for priority residents will be held. Some students such as special research students will enter Okayama University at a time other than April or October. Such irregular entry students need to consult with the international center through the office of their Faculty/Graduate school. Depending on the situation, a room may not be available. If you don’t know if your status at Okayama University is priority, please contact the international student office at Okayama University (housing@・・・). All room assignments are final upon move-in.
