Known at Yamasa as "Student Services" (it is called in Japanese), this office will be your key support center after your arrival at Yamasa. Located on the ground floor of the Yamasa II building next to the library, the office opens early and closes late.

The staff members are all bilingual (there are 2 English speakers, other languages include Korean and Chinese etc), and they handle most of the day-to-day administration. All telephone inquiries to Yamasa are initially answered in this office. This is where fees for tuition and housing may be paid, all documentation such as letters of acceptance, receipts etc are issued, and your main source of advice regarding living in Okazaki.

The staff are available for all of your inquiries regarding

  • Housing (apartments, dormitories and the homestay/homevisit program)
  • Finance (bank accounts, fee payments, receipts)
  • Visas (including extensions, part-time work permits, "alien" registration)
  • Health Care and Insurance
  • Computing and IT support including cellular telephones
  • Translation and interpretation needs
  • Airport bus times, checkout procedures
  • Alumni services

    Q - What are the office hours for gakuseika?
    Ben Heine, UK

    A - The office opens at 8:30 am and closes at 5:00pm JEST - some staff members will still be working after that time but we do ask that counter inquiries finish before then. Emergency contact numbers are provided to all students when they arrive so that they can obtain assistance in any emergency after hours.
