Important information

  • If you are already at school when a strong wind warning is issued, return home before the situation becomes dangerous.
  • If you are on your way to school when a strong wind warning is issued, return home.
  • If you are in the middle of a class when a strong wind warning is issued, return home immediately after the class ends.

In the event of an earthquake

If an earthquake occurs during a class, stay calm, consider the scale of the earthquake and its effects, and consider your own safety first. If the university's Disaster Control Headquarters or the Institute of Liberal Arts < Sciences subsequently orders all faculty members to quickly halt classroom instruction and to proceed with secondary disaster prevention and evacuation measures, follow the instructions of the faculty member, and go to the designated evacuation area.

In the event a Tokai Earthquake Warning is issued

Follow the instructions of the faculty member and go to the designated evacuation area or return home. If you are on your way to class, return home. If you are still at home, stay home and wait for instructions.

When safety information is announced after a Tokai Earthquake Warning

Please note that, when an “All Safe” announcement has been issued because earthquake data has returned to normal, classes scheduled to begin after the “All Safe” announcement will be held as scheduled.

In the event a different disaster occurs or may occur

When it is expected that holding classes will be difficult for reasons other than those discussed above, the Institute of Liberal Arts < Sciences will decide whether or not to cancel classes. In such cases, notices on cancellations, etc. will be posted on the website and notice boards.
