Student Life (School of Global Studies and Collaboration)


The students and faculties of GSC, located on the Sagamihara Campus, are ready to support international students. You can also meet English-speaking staff at the Student Center. So if you need help, please stop by. You will find GSC’s major support resources for international students at the center, which should help you get off to a smooth start for your life in Japan.


Advisers and Tutors

International students are assigned a faculty adviser and a student tutor. Tutors(student buddies) can help the students with course registration, adjusting to life in Japan, Japanese-speaking practice, etc. The Japanese students who volunteer for the tutor program are very interested in other cultures and in developing international friendships.


We help international students find accommodation as convenient and close to our campus. Diakonia Hashimoto is a coed accommodation approximately 5 minutes by foot from Hashimoto station. It is just 3 stations away from Fuchinobe station. GSC strongly recommend Diakonia Hashimoto as your housing, in terms of safety and security (a dorm manager resides in the building), and the total fees are relatively reasonable. Please note that the number of available rooms are limited.
