U Share
Nishi Waseda

In March 2021, Japan’s highest level international student dormitory “U Share Nishi Waseda” opened, where students of the next generation of global leaders live together. 

U Share is not only about “Sharing” where you live, but also about forming a community where people can “Share” their professional and cultural backgrounds, past experiences, personal efforts, and future dreams, which will add a new color to the city. Come join to make your student life fulfilling, with people who are global-minded and hardworking in their own field.


We will provide a monthly rent subsidy and scholarship program of 15,000 yen for those who are moving in as 1st batch residents, in Spring 2022.
