Student Life

  A perfect environment for an enjoyable student life

The Campus Plaza is an 'information station' equipped with all the facilities and equipment necessary to student life.  In addition to the information corner which posts class-related news, there is also a student lounge,  a convenience store, a post office and ATM machines.  Not only that, a book shop, stationary store, a travel agency, fast-food shops, and a locker room are also available for the benefit of the students.

Cafeterias, popular for their good, cheap, and varied menus, are found in each of the five student halls.  Also, in order to ensure both the mental and physical health of the students, an infirmary and a student counseling room provide access to doctors, nurses and professional counselors.  There is also single room accommodation available in the university's residence halls for first year students, and the student affairs office provides information relating to apartments for those living off campus.  Students who prefer not to take advantage of the excellent public transport facilities are invited to use the university's parking lots that provide capacity for up to 1,750 cars.

Also, the Chubu University Support Committee, involving mainly parents of Chubu University students, tirelessly supports the continuous development of the university's education and research capabilities, extracurricular activities, welfare facilities, and employment opportunities.

At Chubu University there are over 3,500 personal computers and Wi-Fi service all around the university, all with direct connections to the Internet.  This gives students ready access to information to help them adjust to life in Japan and it allows them to keep in contact with their families and friends at home. 

Of course, they can also use the Internet to collect information necessary for their studies and to seek out books and other resources from the library.  Each student enrolled in graduate/undergraduate course is provided with an e-mail address.
