Room rates are based on the high end of a range of possible costs; the actual cost of a student's housing will vary, and may well be less expensive than what is estimated here. The estimate is based on available on-campus housing.  Off-campus housing may be more expensive. 

When living on campus there is a 30,000 Yen deposit required.  Any cleaning that must be done or damages that are left after you move out will be deducted from this.
