Re-extension of the campus closure period and remote research/work of faculty and staff until May 20

Waseda University announced that it would close all of its campuses and have its faculty conduct research and staff work remotely until Wednesday, May 6, 2020, in accordance with the request made by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government asking to close universities until this date as part of their emergency measures under Japan’s state of emergency declaration.

Though the media has reported that the Japanese Government may announce a decision whether to extend the state of emergency during the long weekend of May 2-6, Waseda University has decided that, regardless of whatever the Japanese Government’s decision may be, the University should extend the campus closure period until Wednesday, May 20, 2020. The reason for this is that it is necessary to reduce social contacts by 80% in order to protect public health.

Regarding what happens after May 20, we will carefully make decisions taking all circumstances into consideration, and inform you as soon as possible.

Waseda University will start classes online on May 11, as previously announced.
