Dean of Student Affairs SEIKE Kumi

In light of the coronavirus outbreak, the University has decided to temporarily suspend extracurricular activities and facility use until the end of the month. Both on-campus and off-campus extracurricular activities will not be permitted from Thursday, March 12 to Tuesday, March 31. Students will not be able to use university facilities including the Gymnasium and Multipurpose Field for extracurricular activities or individual use during this period.

Student organizations that will hold online meetings must make sure that each member participating in the meeting are doing so from his/her own residence.

An announcement on student activities and facility use from April will be made on Friday, March 27. The Spring Semester Facility Meeting for clubs and circles and the event for clubs and circles to promote their organizations (promotional booth) during the new student orientation period have been postponed. The March 27th announcement will include new dates for these events.

Remember that you are not immune to contracting an infectious disease. Please continue to undertake the measures necessary to protect yourself, your friends, and your club/circle members.
