Student support


The cost of living in Miyazaki is quite reasonable!
Unlike metropolitan life style where the cost of living is high and there are a lot of entertainment facilities, here in Miyazaki, people spend most of their time at the university and home area daily, thus they can save the living expense such as food and rent. The students are not forced to work part time to live, and instead, they can spend that time for study, thus enjoy the student life.
When comparing the average monthly expenses of a student who does not live with their parents, of Tokyo and Miyazaki, the difference is as much as ¥40,000/month. The students in Minami Kyushu University enjoy the great learning environment without struggling to make living. This is an excellent environment for a university student to spend the 4 years.

We support the student finding a place to live!

Before starting the university student life, it is important to find a place to live. We are hoping each student finds a place that is comfortable and meets all the conditions the student is looking for since that is where he/she spends the time for the next several years. In looking for a place to live, we would like the students to take advantage of the property information booklet, issued by the Minami Kyushu University Co-op Student Committee. In addition to information about the prime piece of rented property around the university, the booklet contains useful tips for single living, such as "Things to keep in mind when looking for a place to live" advised by senior students. The students can also ask for an advice for finding a place, so feel free to contact the Co-op Student Committee.
