Where You Will Study

Keio University is a private university located in Tokyo and is one of the most prestigious and oldest universities in Japan. The main campus is in Mita; with additional campuses that include Hiyoshi, Shinanomachi and Shonan Fujisawa.



All participants are strongly recommended to apply for student housing offered by Keio University, which are generally small fully furnished studio apartments for international students and subsidized, making rent similar to housing in Seattle.

The student housing is located in various parts of Tokyo and students should be prepared to commute up to an hour each way to/from Keio University. NOTE: Housing information and application will be sent with the acceptance letter from Keio.


Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.

For the total estimated costs of this particular program, you may request a budget by filling out a Budget Request Form.

Program Evaluations

After participating in a UW Study Abroad program, students are asked to complete a Program Evaluation Report detailing their experiences abroad and giving advice for future students. These reports cover all aspects of a student's time abroad, including orientation, academics, housing, finances, and cultural differences.
