Kansai University operates five dormitories to promote educational benefits. The role of each dormitory is not just to provide accommodation, but to also cultivate healthier relationships through disciplined communal living. Living and communicating with non-Japanese students in the dormitories serves to enhance international sensibilities and promote exchange.

Typically two students share each room, and the maximum resident period is two years. The dormitory consists of the north and south buildings. The first floor is shared space with a dining hall, library, Japanese-style room, bathroom, lounge and so on. The second floor and above are residential areas with student rooms, shower rooms, laundries and so on.
