Information for Incoming Students, including The September Arrival Schedule

The September Arrival Schedule

and events planning is here for your reference.

                September Plan (Calendar) – .  This is subject to change!  Watch for updates!!!

Note there are various arrival dates for various groups depending on what activities you will do in September on campus.
Because of the dorm maintenance needs, these dates are quite strict.

Incoming Dorm Room Assignments 

All incoming students will be allocated a single dorm room, and informed the address by early September by email.  Please let us know your room preferences on THIS FORM as early as possible (deadlines are late July each year). In principle the room assigned will be your Japan address until graduation.

Online Support

MENTOR Program

Incoming students are assigned a 2nd year student as their Mentor.  Please see this PDF file, find your student ID and note your Mentor’s name and email address.  Your Mentor will contact you between early September and early October to offer support.  Please seek out your mentor for any kind of advice, guidance, etc. you would like to ask a fellow student (rather than a staff or faculty member).

The Arrival Guide

is available in PDF form here. Info Pack  This is packed with info on Japan, getting to campus, useful expressions and much more.  We send hardcopies of the guide with your Certificate of Eligibility (for visa applications). We recommend you carry this guide from the airport to campus as often people find each other en route, and enjoy traveling together to campus.

Note on Illegal Substances in Japan:

Please read and use as an important guideline.
