School location and facilities

Temple University, Japan Campus is located within two buildings in the Minami Azabu and Mita districts in central Tokyo and is surrounded by several embassies, international companies, and two major universities. Occupying several floors of each building, TUJ provides a comfortable yet lively atmosphere, where you can expect to see the familiar faces of faculty, staff and fellow students on a regular basis. 

Facilities include classroom space, art studios, computer labs and a wireless network, student lounges, a library, a career center, a teaching and learning center, and administrative offices. On the first floor of Azabu Hall, you will find the Office of Student Services (OSS). As the office responsible for non-academic programming and support, OSS will likely serve as your home base during your time at TUJ.
TUJ is easy to reach using Tokyo’s famous public transportation system and is within walking distance of several subway and train stations. You will find the location convenient for grabbing lunch at one of the many Japanese or international eateries, or a well-stocked convenience store, and for exploring Tokyo after class. You may hop on the train for a quick ride to Shibuya, a vibrant area popular with young adults, or head to the Imperial Palace (home to the emperor), the Diet Building (Japanese Legislature), or the shopping districts of Ginza and Shinjuku, all of which are less than three miles from campus.
