(a) Individual Counseling
Feel free to ask the faculties and staff about anything related to gender and sexual orientation diversity. Currently for students only.
There is a specialized staff member who can speak English (at the everyday conversation level) at GS center, but depending on the content of the counseling, this might become difficult to respond due to the lack of English proficiency of the staff. Please apply for counseling using the form below. Please select your preferred counseling style (face-to-face, online or Email).
(b) Chat Space & Reading Space
You can visit the Gender & Sexuality center if you make an appointment. Each slot in the form is worth 30 minutes. As a general rule, only one person will be allowed to visit during the time of the appointment. However, we will remain flexible depending on your needs (We will prioritize our in-person counseling schedule). Please note that we may not be able to respond to your needs as quickly because we have reduced the number of staff working on site to reduce the risks of infection. (The staff on site is a Japanese speaker)
You can register your appointment through this form (Japanese) or send us an email at “gswaseda#list.waseda.jp （＃→@)”, indicating (a) the area you would like to use (chat space or reading space) and (b) your preferred date and the time (list up to three preferences).
