Student Guidance Room
Important change: How to contact us and receive couseling (updated: June 29 2020)
Although the state of emergency has been lifted, not all the students, faculty and staff members of Tokyo Tech are permitted to enter campus. In order to comply with the directives, Student Guidance Room will continuously suspend face-to-face meetings in principle, potentially until
April 19 May 8 May 31 June 21 August 10. Both first-time students and regular clients are able to receive counseling via email and on the telephone. Please call or email us to book an appointment when you need help instead of visiting or call us. Changes may happen under unforseen circumstances. We apologize this inconvenience.
Student Guidance Room offers you guidance and counselling for being well and maintaining a balance between your academic and personal life. We provide services in English for non-Japanese speakers.
