Nagoya Campus

An Urban-type Campus for International Communication

Nagoya Campus
Aichi University opened its new Nagoya campus in April 2012 in the Sasashima Live 24 Redevelopment District close to Nagoya Station. In this district, which is positioned by Nagoya City as the base for international hospitality and exchange, the university has brought together three faculties of social sciences and two faculties of international studies. Some joint projects with the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), also located in the same district, are already under way. The district is a place where people from around the globe gather, offering opportunities to be open to and get in contact with the world. This new cosmopolitan town bustling with the latest trends of the current era is home to the Nagoya campus.

Environmentally-friendly campus with an efficient layout of functions necessary for student life

Nagoya Campus
The Nagoya Campus comprises three buildings – the Main Building (research building), the Lecture Building, and the Welfare Building – and the Global Convention Hall. With an efficient layout of all functions necessary for education, research, and extracurricular activities, the campus allows for a smooth transition between classrooms. There are many free spaces suitable for voluntary and self-motivated learning on the campus, including discussion rooms in the library and the Learning Commons. In these facilities, students can do research for a seminar or write a report using a borrowed PC, making effective use of their spare time between classes. Thus, the campus offers a greatly enriched learning environment. The Sky Lounge, newly furnished on the 20th floor of the Main Building, which commands a panoramic view of Nagoya Station on the northern side and the Kanayama area and the Nakagawa Canal to the south, serves as a common space for free communication among students and faculty members. The Main Building (research building) is also equipped with “Ecovoid,” an effective natural-air ventilation system using the prevailing winds, realizing an environmentally friendly campus.

Nagoya, a city connecting people, society, and the world

Nagoya is a city representative of the Chubu region. Nagoya Station, which serves as a gateway to the city, connects the city with major cities in the Tokyo Metropolitan area and the Kinki and Chubu regions by rail. Moreover, Chubu Centrair International Airport and the Port of Nagoya helps expand the city’s global network. With the Linear Chuo Shinkansen Line due to start operation in 2027, it is expected that the city’s urban functions and global competitiveness will be further enhanced in the future. In the area to the south of Nagoya Station, Sasashima Live, an urban area that is being developed as a hub for international interaction and hospitality by Nagoya City, is located approximately ten minutes’ walk from the station. We found that the development concept for the area matched our founding spirit, so we opened our Nagoya Campus in this area in 2012. In 2015, we signed a partnership agreement aimed at developing the local community with the Housing and Urban Planning Bureau of the Nagoya Municipal Government. The second phase construction of the campus was completed in March 2017, and the Sasashima Live area was opened in October in the same year. With the campus harmonized with the city’s most newly developed area with various information dissemination capacities in the fields of politics, economy, culture, and international exchange, you will feel a close connection with society through daily learning. In addition, a new plan is being developed to establish water access from the Nakagawa Canal (water space) to the Kinjo Pier via the Lalaport shopping center. The Sasashima Live area, which also contributes to enhancing the convenience of tourists, will continue to develop in the future.
