Accomodation | Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University



Students are guaranteed a furnished single room in APU’s downtown student housing facility, AP House 4. For details regarding the facilities please see the APU Student Office Website.

Resident Assistants (Ras) are available around the clock to offer support to residents. You will find many entertainment options near AP House 4 such as shopping malls, cafes, karaoke, bowling, and restaurants with international food. Since AP House 4 is located off-campus, students have to commute to APU on their own expense. Many of APU’s regular students also live in downtown Beppu so we hope this will allow for more opportunities for exchange students to meet with them too. Total housing fees (see below) are to be paid prior to arrival and the invoice will be sent to you together with your notification of acceptance letter.

Accommodation information and fees are subject to change.
