One Stop Information Corner (Q and A, free discussion on any topic)
The One Stop Information Corner is a place where you can come by and ask any kind of questions and consult about any topics you wish to discuss.

The Corner is open Monday to Friday from 9:30 to 17:30. The location is on the second floor just at the top of the stairs from the back entrance to Yasuda Auditorium.

The University of Tokyo CO-OP
You can purchase the necessities of daily student life, such as books and personal items, at lower prices at the university’s Consumers’ Cooperative Society(COOP) on campus. Specifically, books are sold at a 10% discount to students. If you wish to shop at the CO-OP, you must become a CO-OP member. The application fee for CO-OP membership is 16,000 yen. If you withdraw from the CO-OP when you return to your home country, you will receive a refund equal to the amount of your initial contribution.

Tutoring programs that assign a Japanese student or international student as your tutor can help you acclimatize more quickly to your new student life in Japan. For more information, your international student adviser will explain to you at an international students’ guidance.
