As an American university, TUJ provides many services and houses many facilities unique to a modern American university that support your academic life.
The TUJ library, which focuses on English-language publications, holds over books, a browsing collection of magazines and journals, and more than DVD titles. Students can also access the online resources of Temple University or borrow materials from Japanese institutions and libraries worldwide.
The Office of Student Services and Engagement (OSSE) is the first point of contact for accepted students, providing assistance with the visa application process and coordinating financial aid and student housing. OSSE organizes orientations, events and activities to assist students in their academic and social life.
The Career Development Office conducts career fairs and seminars on employment strategies, provides career counseling, and offers guidance on writing resumes and interviewing techniques applicable to both Japanese and multinational companies in Japan.
Academic advisors provide students with group and individual advising sessions. Students can receive advising on their academic plans and options, graduation status, transfer to Temple's main campus in Philadelphia, and other academic questions or concerns.
Information Technology Services (ITS)
Information Technology Services (ITS) is composed to two teams. Our IT Operations team which provides front line technical support, manages the in-classroom technology and our computer labs. Our Administrative Systems team support TUJ's administrative systems.
The Learning Center
The Learning Center supports students in academic writing, math, Japanese, and other subjects both in-person (on campus) and online (via Zoom). Details can be found on The Learning Center web site.
Professional counselors are available to provide free and confidential counseling services both in English and Japanese. The services include individual and group counseling and phone consultation. The office also offers workshops on stress management, time management, communication skills and other topics.
TUJ sponsors a variety of activities and events throughout the semester, including culture and language exchange programs, day outings, and overnight trips. These activities are designed to cultivate social relations among our diverse university community and advance the university's mission as an international institution in Japan.
The Student Government serves as the voice of the student body, and advocates for their needs as their elected representatives. The Student Government also organizes various events during the academic year to help promote active student life.
Student Organizations and Clubs
Student organizations and clubs—created and run by students—are overseen by the Office of Student Services and Engagement (OSSE). These organizations help students identify others with similar interests, and promote friendship among students.
Dean's De-Stress Day
Dean Wilson periodically greets students at the entrance of TUJ with a smile and free American-themed food. We have had cream puffs, Subway sandwiches, special desserts from Tokyo American Club and more at past “Deans’ De-Stress Days” for students, staff and faculty.
Emerging Leader's Program
This program recruits new students and conducts intensive and practical leadership training before the start of the semester. At the same time, it develops the next generation of student leaders at TUJ and develops skills that will enable them to play an active role in a global environment in the future.
eSports / TUJ Gaming Club
TUJ has launched an official varsity team to compete in national and global competitions involving the video game Valorant. In addition to the varsity team, the TUJ Gaming Club has been actively bringing together students who enjoy playing both casual and competitive games. The club regularly organizes events and activities.
TUJ guarantees housing for new international students. Those on a TUJ-sponsored student visa are required to spend their first semester in TUJ housing. Housing options include dormitories or living with a Japanese host family.
