Restrictions for on-Campus Events After April 26, 2021
Dear Faculty and Staff,
Given that the state of emergency is set to be declared in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Hyogo, Waseda University has decided to make further changes to its on-campus event restrictions. Effective April 26, 2021, stronger restrictions for events held on-campus will be as listed below.
All students, faculty and staff are expected to strictly adhere to the following regulations, and these regulations will be in effect on all Waseda campuses, including campuses outside Tokyo.
Updated rules for holding on-campus events:
- Above all else, it is strongly recommended that all events be held online.
- Except events that have been pre-approved by the Novel Coronavirus Response Headquarters, all face-to-face on-campus events organized by either the University or faculty/staff for internal purposes will not be permitted.
- Indoor, on-campus events organized by external parties must not have participants exceeding half the maximum venue capacity if the event is not suitable to an online format. Eating during the event will not be permitted.
- The above regulations are laid out to prioritize the continuation of on-campus classes and research activities. They may be eased in the future when the coronavirus situation beings to improve.
