Total Support Room (Health Support / Student Consultations / Student Support)

Total Support Room is an organization that oversees the three centers discussed below. Previously, the name “Student Support Center” encompassed the Health Management Center, the Student Counseling Center, and the Student Lifestyle Support Center (established in 2010), and was familiarly known to students as the “Gaku Sapo.” More recently, the organization has been changed in order to enable us to focus more on specialization and provide more effective and wide-ranging student support, resulting in changes in the names of the centers, as shown below. No matter which center students visit or what their problem is, specialists in various fields will comprehensively work together to provide support. Please feel free to visit if you are experiencing any problems in your student life, and we will do our best to help you have a better university experience.
