Senzoku-ike House, a three-floor dormitory exclusively for women, opened just a short walk away from Ookayama Campus in April 2017. The new building can accommodate 102 students.
The number of female students at Tokyo Tech has increased fourfold in the last 30 years, and providing these STEM women a safer, more convenient environment is one of the Institute's continuous goals.
Located just a stone's throw from the lush and scenic Senzoku-ike Park, the dorm is in a prime location. Ookayama Campus is 15 minutes east on foot (5 minutes by bike), and the park en route provides an ideal place for a breather between study or research.
Each unit in the building consists of three private bedrooms and a common space. All bedrooms have wooded flooring, plenty of storage space, and drying racks. Common spaces are equipped with washbasins, spacious shoe shelves, and full-length mirrors. A large kitchen, dining room, and shower rooms are located outside the units in other sections of the building.
Inhabitants include both Japanese and international students, ensuring a diverse melting pot of cultures and personalities.
