New school building, dormitory to accommodate enrollment growth

Temple University Japan opened two major facilities in August — a second academic building and a new student dormitory — to accommodate rapidly growing enrollment and to provide students with the best possible academic and living environments.

The new classroom and office facility, Mita Hall, is now home to the law, M.B.A., and corporate education programs, along with some undergraduate faculty and courses.

With a total area of about 13,000 square feet, Mita Hall houses “smart” technology classrooms, a study room, student lounges, a computer lab, and meeting and seminar rooms, replicating many features of TUJ’s main facility, Azabu Hall, which is only a five-minute walk away.

Sakura House Ontake-san, TUJ’s third student dormitory, primarily accommodates the increasing number of TUJ students coming from the United States and other countries.

The dormitory is approximately 50 minutes from TUJ via public transportation.

Already fully booked this fall, it houses more than 60 students, all in single rooms, and offers a lounge area, kitchen, shower rooms and laundry rooms.
