What is MyWaseda?

MyWaseda is the new portal site of Waseda University.
With MyWaseda, it is possible to make improvements in operability and convenience that were pointed out in the case of the Waseda-net portal until now, and use it on multiple devices (use on smartphones and tablets). Moving forward, we plan to gradually enhance these features and introduce a new level of convenience.

My name is shown in katakana (phonetic characters)

The name displayed on MyWaseda or Course [email protected] may be displayed in Katakana (phonetic characters). This is because when kanji characters other than JIS character code first/second standards are used for the name, these cannot be displayed in ordinary browsers, and the display is thus overwritten in katakana characters.
The name display in MyWaseda, Course [email protected] may be changed into alternate characters (this does not affect the Kanji name on certificates etc.)

Those wishing to change in this way should make contact via MyWaseda.

  1. Log in to MyWaseda
  2. Click (right)service menu [Support and Application for the systems (Helpdesk)] from the global menu [IT Service]
  3. Click [問い合わせ/Support] > [ITサービス/IT Service] > [MyWasedaに関する問い合わせ/Inquiries of MyWaseda].
  4. Enter the necessary items on the application form displayed by pressing the [Submit] button. In the [問合せ内容/Inquiry details] column, specify the fact that you wish to change the kanji for your name and the desired alternate characters (full name).

    e.g. 「はしごだか」 as variant of 「高」など

  5. Press the "Save" button.
  6. (After receiving the application, this will be changed in approximately one week. An e-mail shall be sent on completion.)
