Today I want to talk about my lovely “home” in Japan. I live in the Nishi-Waseda International Student dormitory. This dorm is only 10 minutes walk far from the campus of Waseda University. This is the one of the reason why I choose to live in the school dormitory. In addition, I want to introduce more details about the advantages and rules of living in the Waseda dorm. I hope you could use my article to consider the living place during the exchange time.
Here are some pictures of my dorm.There are three dormitories near the Waseda University. Nishi-Waseda is one of them and it is very popular for the international students. Most of them could speak English very well so we can communicate very easily.
Nishi-Waseda dorm has a common place for students to study, cook and play games. They only provide Wi-Fi in this place. But all the equipment in this kitchen are free for everyone to use and each floor has one kitchen.
We also has the mangers who live in this dorm for helping. If you have any questions or problems, you can come and find them to ask. Out of the office time, you could find the student assistants to help you. Most important thing, they all speak English and Japanese.
For the room, we have a little refrigerator, air-conditioner and toilet. Except the twin room, you do no need to share the bathroom with other people. We even have a small balcony for some single rooms.You may want to ask for the laundry room. It is not free, you need to pay 500 yen one time. But it is quit cheaper I think.
However, this dorm also has some strict rules. You could not let your friends enter in the entry of this dormitory. It it not allowed. Family members could visit you but can not live in your room. Moreover, you should keep quiet before 8:00 AM and after 9:00 PM. School has the right to keep you out of this dorm if you always go against the rule. So please pay attention on these regulations.
In a word, I really enjoy the life in the dorm. I make a lot of friends who come from different countries over the world. It makes me really happy and I have so much fun with them!
See you soon~Thanks for reading!
