The University of Tsukuba is situated in an environment rich in nature, with a vast campus spreading 4km long and 800m across, with a total of 2,460,000m2 forming the nucleus of the Tsukuba Science City. It is open both to the surrounding cityscape and neighboring regions. We have students from across the nation and world, with around 1,000 international students. They study in one of the most advanced education and research facilities and live in the student residence halls surrounding by lush nature, or in one of the many apartments that can be found close to campus.

The campus facilities are connected by a pedestrian and bicycle route, and a loop that goes around the campus. You can move from one lecture hall to another easily by foot, bicycle, or the free campus bus.

There is priority acceptance for first year students at the student residence halls, which hold around 4,000 people and helps you get used to university life. You will meet many friends and senior students with different views and life experiences, and the strong relationships you build here are sure to assist you in tackling the academic and private issues. Rooms are single rooms (some are for two), rented at 10,000 yen a month (including common utility fees) with bed, desk, chair, and sink. Each room has an internal phone line that connects free of charge to any internal phone in the halls or on campus, and provides Internet access. You can also have an NTT public phone line connected to your room phone.

Each floor has a common kitchen and laundry room, and there are cafeterias, shops, barbers, beauty salons, cafes, and recreation rooms at the public services buildings in each area. There are many apartment rooms available around campus, for half the rent in Tokyo. Economic support is offered through scholarships from the Japan Student Services Organization and other institutions, as well as tuition fee exemptions from the University.

There are 190 student organizations recognized by the University, and 120 are active extracurricular clubs (around 40 liberal arts clubs, 55 sports clubs, 25 arts clubs) with some significant achievements in the past. The University also has facilities in other parts of the country, including educational research facilities and Training Centers in Yamanaka, Ishiuchi, and Tateyama, which can be used for various purposes.
