Is it possible to visit the university campus?
Certainly. If you visit Admission Section between 9 am and 4 pm on any day except Sundays and national holidays, you can receive our prospectus (available in Japanese only) and our campus map. You are welcome to freely look around the campus, and although you are not permitted to enter the classrooms, studios and workrooms, you can observe them from outside.
Since there are few students on campus during the summer, winter, and spring vacations, these times may not be appropriate times for your visit. The university is fully open to the public : at our open campus, the art festival and Degree Show. For the university schedule, please refer to the Calendar of Events.
