new dormitories

Two new dormitories, Momi House and Maple House, opened in April 2017. ICU is running a fundraising campaign for the new dormitories until March 13, 2019. 

Letter from President Junko Hibiya

ICU President Junko Hibiya

Ever since the First Men’s and Women’s Dorms opened their doors in 1955, ICU’s dormitories have been educational living quarters where students explore and practice liberal arts. In addition to the eight dormitories that currently house students, two new buildings will open in April 2017. This will increase the capacity of dorms to approximately 900 students total, which is roughly 30% of the student body.

ICU is committed to pursuing globalization through the Top Global University Project of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Science and Technology (MEXT), and providing dormitories where Japanese and non-Japanese students live side by side is part of such efforts.

We request your support for the construction and maintenance of the new dorms as well as our new endeavor to host community activities in the dorms.

President of ICU


seabury chapel


Alumni of Class 16, who are commemorating the 50th anniversary of their matriculation at ICU, started a fundraising campaign for the repair of Seabury Chapel. 

Seabury Chapel, also known as the “triangle chapel,”  is on the Western side of the grassy area in front of University Hall. In addition to religious services, open lectures and seminars, the chapel has been used for wedding ceremonies and small social gatherings. It was built in 1959, and after 59 years, the building is no longer recommended for use. A weekly Worship Night organized by a group of students is about the only event that is still held there.

Class 16 welcomes donations from anyone in the class as well as outside the class. 
Donations collected from Class 16 will be gifted to the university on April 21st at the celebratory event for Classes 16 and 41 commemorating their 50th and 25th anniversary respectively. 

If you are in North America and would like to make a tax-deductible donation, please donate through the form on the top right of this page, or send a check to JICUF (475 Riverside Dr. Suite 439, New York, NY 10115). Please type “Seabury Chapel” in the comment section, and also “Class 16” if you are from this class.
