Campus Closure from April 8 to 21 Due to Remote Work & Research

Waseda University has announced that we would be starting online teaching on May 11, 2020 for the Spring Semester/Quarter 2020, and we are now preparing for that. Meanwhile, the spread of the new coronavirus has accelerated very quickly over the last five days or so in the Tokyo metropolitan area. For this reason, we now have to make a new decision to close our campus and to have faculty members and staff of Waseda University work at home. We will have to inform our students and visitors to Waseda University that all of our campuses will be closed. We apologize for the inconvenience.

We should not forget the following important missions of Waseda University. Firstly, we have to ensure the health and well-being of our students, faculty members, and staff. Secondly, we are committed to providing students with an excellent education. Thirdly, we have to continue to conduct our research even under difficult conditions. In order to fulfill these missions, we will continue to work from remote sites. During this time, we will not be able to respond to your phone calls. If you really need to consult with our offices, you may get in touch with us via email. However, we may not be able to respond to you quickly because many inquiries are expected to come via email. We again apologize for the inconvenience.

Campus Closure Period: From April 8 till April 21, 2020

Note 1: This period may be extended, if the situation of coronavirus does not get any better.

Note 2: All campuses, except Kitakyushu Campus (the Graduate School of Information Production System), will be closed. (Updated on April 7)
