The city of Toyohashi is in Aichi Prefecture and has developed while maintaining the history and traditions of the eastern part of the historically important Mikawa district. Toyohashi has also become the economic center of this district. The cultures of east and west Japan meet here, so the town has developed a unique flavor. This atmosphere, together with the streetcars and streets rich in greenery, fosters a human touch - Toyohashi has long been ranked as one of the most livable cities in Japan and its people remain proud of this.
The university has a library on each of its campuses, possessing a total of 1.72 million volumes - mainly books on the related academic fields. This number of volumes is far greater than the average of private universities (about 300,000 volumes) and that of national universities (about 1.11 million volumes). The book search system that is available around the clock and self-study carrels, among other things, make the libraries convenient to use.

The second and third floors house a conversation lounge exclusively reserved to junior college students and other female students as well as the rooms for students' clubs and circles. Students come here to relax during a recess and in their spare time.
