Facilities and Services

Temple University opened its Japan Campus (TUJ) in 1982, and the Law School started classes in Tokyo in 1994. TUJ is the oldest and largest American university in Japan with about 3,400 learners, including participants in its Corporate Education programs. Also, it is the first foreign university with a branch campus in Japan to receive a "Recognition of Excellence" from the Japanese government.

Our campus is located right in the heart of Tokyo


The TUJ library houses over 50,000 books and periodical titles. While most journals are now accessed through online systems, the library maintains a browsing collection of about 200 magazine, journal and newspaper titles. Students can access the TUJ library holdings online and have access to over 750 databases, 40,000 full text online journals, and thousands of e-books.

The law holdings of the TUJ library are selected to provide support for the courses offered at the Japan campus and to serve as an introduction to the Japanese and U.S. legal systems. The library attempts to acquire all book materials published in English relating to Japanese law as well as general materials related to our curriculum. The TUJ library staff can also access the holdings of the Law School Library in Philadelphia when student or faculty members need additional material for their research.
