Message from the Dormitory Manager

Most students have probably thought, "Why would I want to live in a dorm? It's definitely better to live alone." I think almost all of Seizenryo's residents up to now have thought the same thing, but when it was time to move out, they didn't want to  leave. Why is that? It's because every day at Seizenryo is like being on a school trip: you have fun, you get time for yourself, and you form bonds with about 60 senior and junior students over your four years. 
Experience living in a dormitory will be a great advantage when you go out into the world. We're waiting for you at Seizenryo!

Message from residents

静修寮学生Seizenryo boasts over a century of history, the students who live here get along very well, and the atmosphere is very friendly. We are confident that our dorm residents are more connected to each other than any other dormitory. For example, we enjoy holding dormitory student game tournaments. Recently, we've held fierce Mario Kart and Smash Bros. tournaments. Seizenryo has a very at-home vibe.

In addition, from their first year living at Seizenryo, students have private rooms so that they can spend time alone at their leisure. However, since dorm life is also group life, there is a minimum level of discipline and courtesy that must be observed. You need to be mindful of greetings, and be aware of the language you use with older students. Observing these things will definitely benefit you when you enter the workforce. Living under one roof with people from different values and backgrounds also means that you need to understand and accept each other. 

Since 40 people live together, naturally, there will be times when your relationships with other people will pose challenges. How you cope with these difficulties will be an important step in becoming an adult member of society, and your four years of dormitory life will have broadened your horizons as a person by the time you graduate. In addition, be aware that Kwansei Gakuin University provides us with a great deal of support, and live with us with the responsibility of being a Kwansei Gakuin student. You will be able to experience things that other university students cannot, make memories that will last a lifetime, and make some of the closest friends you will ever have. If you choose to live in Seizenryo Dormitory, you will improve your receptiveness and communication skills, and enjoy a fulfilling university life.
