“Meikei-kai” (the alumni association of Tokyo University of Education) founded Tsukuba Gakuto Shikin Foundation(T.G.S.F.) wishing to assist indirectly the Tsukuba University, which based on the former university of Tokyo University of Education at the time of its opening here in Tsukuba. The Student Residence Hall Administration Office which is a cell of this T.G.S.F.is managing and operating this dormitory.
The basic operating policy of T.G.S.F. is not for aiming profit but for being of “Provide students an excellent study environment along with the opportunity to experience an autonomous civic life” under the idea of University of Tsukuba Student Residence Hall Administration Office and we execute our duty under this basic policy with a motto of “Safety & Comfortable.”
We started the duty of managing the dormitory newly in the form of contract for administration and operation with the University from September 1, 2017, ending the method of Common Service Charge which every resident paid.
The expenditures to run the dormitory are to be as effectively as possible and annual accounting is to be reported to the university after authorization of T.G.S.F..
Thank you for visiting our Web-site. I am Ikuo Shinta, General Manager of Student Residence Halls Administration Office. I would like to explain about “Tsukuba University Student Residence Halls Administration Office”.
The University of Tsukuba was established in October 1973, due to the relocation of its antecedent, the Tokyo University of Education, to the Tsukuba area and it built student residence halls to accommodate many students in the campus. At first six buildings for 740 students were built in Hirasuna area and now it has 50 buildings, for 3,120 residents in four areas (Ichinoya, Hirasuna, Oikoshi and Kasuga) and the size is bigger than any other university in Japan. International residents in dormitory are more than 1, 200 (staying rate in dormitory is 50-60%) and the area is internationalized atmosphere.
In the each area the staffs are stationing every day and night and supporting residents. We are giving many kinds of advice for various questions from residents. As every resident building has a door security system and the security guards are patrolling, the campus is quite safe for residents’ life.
Orientation by the University is held for comfortable student life on April when many freshmen come. Many circles have welcome ceremonies, too. On May the biggest event in resident life, Yadokari festival, is held, which is planned and managed by the executive committee of student residents. The activity is promoted together with local area. On August some of the dormitory rooms are opened for coming freshmen together with “Open Campus by the University.”On September we welcome many international students and the area is lively season again. Some residents will stay continuously and become “Community Leader” who support newcomers next year.
I have stayed myself in this student residence hall and after graduation I could meet many people and have made good relations in actual society and overseas life thanks to dormitory life. Remembering this, I think my dormitory life was a valuable and precious time. By meeting various people, we understand well others and live in harmony. As far as you enter the Tsukuba University, why don’t you have experiences to contact people with different cultures and life styles?
They will surely bring a precious time to your life.
All of us are looking forward to meeting you in the dormitory.
