Message from the Dormitory Manager

Our historic dormitory has a wonderful tradition. The idea is that all residents, led by the dormitory leadership, should share their opinions, consider what should be done to make life more fulfilling in the group setting of a dormitory, and put them into action. It’s really an autonomous dormitory. Please spend a fulfilling four years here at Keimeiryo. Geographically, we’re very close to both the Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus and the Nishinomiya Seiwa Campus.
