Global Student Housing in Tokyo
Beyond Books and Borders.
This is the kind of community we want to build.
Don’t tell your parents and professors, but we think off-campus life is equally as important as hitting the books. We want to impact a student’s journey by offering a place to make lasting memories and life-long friendships in one of the most
culturally-fascinating countries in the world.

How is life at UNINEST?
Coming from far northern Japan, I never imagined I could have the unique experience I am today at Uninest. Had I chosen to stay in my university’s dormitory, my environment would not have diverse flavor it does now. I’m truly glad to be living with Uninest! Speaking of flavor, during my stay, I wanted to take on a new challenge that would give back to my hardworking peers. So, I started my own cooking service called “Totonoi Shokudo”. I can prepare tasty and balanced side dishes in Uninest’s big kitchen. It’s really rewarding for me when my fellow residents enjoy my cooking.
Sharing a home with the Japanese residents here at Uninest, I really enjoy my life every day. I’ve long appreciated the considerate and thoughtful character of Japanese people, and now I love them more than ever. We watch movies and sing karaoke in the dorm’s theater room, and we explore Tokyo together. One girl here has become my first Japanese “best friend”. I would like to create more opportunities for foreign residents to connect with the Japanese residents at Uninest.
What I like about Uninest is how kind the staff are - their warm greetings as you head out make all the difference. Thanks to my roommate, there's no sense of the loneliness that I expected after leaving home. As my roommate is Japanese, there are days when we speak English, and days when we speak in Japanese. Going between languages, studying becomes part of daily life. It's such a fantastic opportunity to be able to learn in this way. The excellent security, and fact there's no curfew, is brilliant.
