The Lectures and Research Building is the main location of student activity on campus. There are ten lecture rooms of varying size on the 1st and 2nd floors, each equipped with a monitor, and some are equipped with additional resources such as personal computers. On the 3rd and 4th floors there is one common research room, and 28 individual research rooms. Finally, on the 1st floor there is a student lounge, which can be used as a space for relaxation.

In the nursing practice room, with a striking pink door, the same instrument as those used in the medical field are provided so students can develop practical skills. The computer room is for learning the basics of information processing required both in modern society as well as in nursing. There is also a simulation lab equipped with a computerized model of the human body. Students can acquire the nursing techniques required for medical emergencies, and so on.
This plaza is designed for socialization and is inspired by the Coliseum of Rome.
Normally a place for students to rest and talk, during events a stage is provided for concerts and open space is used for vendor stalls.
Club rooms for our students’ culture and sports clubs are located here. As a base for group activities, vibrant voices can be heard here every day. The building has also been equipped with a locker room.
Facilities are maintained for various sports.
The gymnasium can be set up as 1 basketball court, 2 volleyball courts, or 3 badminton courts. In addition to being used for the university’s physical education classes, it is also open on holidays to the local public for a fee.
An appropriately quiet environment has been kept in this room allowing mental focus for competition and practice.
Because there is a fully automatic shutter separating indoors and outdoors, raising and lowering it is easy.
There are two tennis courts surrounded by greenery. Because they are laid from real grass and are well-drained, they are easy to use. In additional to being used for physical education classes, they are also used for group activities.
During physical education classes, students have made extensive use of the grounds for enjoyment of sports and exercise.
