To All Students,

Advisory to refrain from entering campus grounds, and cancellation of the lending of university facilities

In view of the devastation caused by the Great Tohoku-Kanto Earthquake that struck on March 11, as well as of the subsequent power shortages and difficult transportation situation, we urge you to avoid going out unless it is absolutely necessary. Please refrain from entering the campus grounds unless in emergency cases.

For the time being, we will also discontinue the lending of facilities on our Surugadai, Izumi and Ikuta Campuses. Resumption of the lending of facilities will be determined after careful consideration of the ongoing situation.

Information on status events that are planned at the university will be provided, as required, on the Meiji University website.


Emails, etc., from senders posing as Meiji University to confirm and obtain personal information

It appears that emails from senders posing as university personnel are being sent to students of some universities, trying to obtain their personal information. These senders are pretending to be university officials, claiming to be trying to confirm the safety of students. We have yet to confirm if similar emails have been sent to Meiji University students. However, we urge all of you to exercise maximum caution by confirming the sender’s name and avoid sending back your personal and other information. Besides these emails, please make absolutely sure not to be misled by unconfirmed or suspicious information that appears to be circulating on the Internet. Please note that on 14th and 15th March, Meiji University sent a message through Oh-o!Meiji! portal website to all international students to confirm their safety.
