The New Temple University, Japan Campus

Global Campus, Global Future

The New TUJ Campus—Opening 2019

Help Build the New TUJ

The goal of the building campaign is to raise ¥150,000,000 to fund the interior design, outfitting and physical move of Temple University, Japan Campus (TUJ) from Minami-Azabu to a purpose-built academic facility on the campus of Showa Women's University (SWU) in Setagaya-ku, Tokyo in 2019.

The new facility will allow TUJ to better meet its historic mission to educate students as global citizens while continuing its strategic growth and academic program development over the next 20 years.

The new building will bring graduate and undergraduate programs, classrooms and administrative offices currently spread across three facilities in Tokyo together under one roof. This will greatly enhance TUJ's learning environment, improve access to faculty and academic support services for students, and increase operational efficiencies for university staff. The relocation will also create new opportunities for collaborative programs with SWU, increased faculty research, and an improved student life experience with access to athletic facilities.

Global Campus, Global Future*

The new TUJ campus will feature:

  • A traditional university setting with usable outdoor spaces and access to athletic facilities
  • A new academic building with 8,700 square meters across six floors dedicated solely to TUJ
  • A 50,000-volume library with access to expansive on line resources and academic journals
  • Expanded studio space for art and photography programs
  • A dedicated gallery space to showcase the artwork and talent of TUJ students
  • Integrated IT infrastructure throughout
  • Improved faculty spaces
  • Enhanced student common areas, including a larger student lounge and cafeteria
  • An improved layout of administrative offices for operational and staffing efficiency
  • Extensive meeting space for staff, and dedicated study and discussion rooms for students
