Komaba Student Counseling Center (Building 1)

The Komaba Student Counseling Center is designed to support and advise students on various problems and questions. The center is open not only for students in the Junior Division of the College of Arts and Sciences, but also for students in the Senior Division and at the Graduate School.

Advice is given on a range of topics, including careers, human relationships, mental health issues, financial problems, dealing with unwanted solicitations, repeating a year or taking a leave of absence, studying abroad, and selecting courses. In many cases, the problem cannot be resolved immediately and the student may wish to consult the Center regularly, or seek a solution through counseling. There are also group counseling sessions to encourage students to think about their individuality, as well as study support schemes run by graduate teaching assistants.

Depending on the nature of the problem, the center may also collaborate with other student support facilities on campus, such as the psychiatry unit at the Komaba Health Service Center, the Academic Guidance Center, the International Students' Advisory Office, and the Harassment Counseling Center, as well as with facilities in the wider university, such as the Academic Affairs Division, Student Support Division, and the student counseling centers at the Hongo/ Kashiwa campuses.

Academic Guidance Center (Building 1)

Students at the University of Tokyo undertake a broad two-year liberal arts education in the Junior Division, before selecting a specialist field for further study in the Senior Division. The Academic Guidance Center provides information and advice to guide students during this process, so that they can choose a field that suits their interests and aptitude. In the Reference Room, there are materials on course selection (shin-furi) as well as various materials on both undergraduate and graduate education and research. Students may also access information on the admissions process from the computer terminals. The Reference Room becomes very crowded at the start of the semester or around the time when the Preference for Senior Division Admission application form is due. Students may also use the counseling room to seek advice for any problems regarding their current or future studies.
