Information Center

The Information Center is a space for the public to learn more about the University of Tokyo. The Center opened on September 21st, 1995 as the University’s first public relations facility and is available to everyone within and outside of the University to use.

The building that houses the Information Center was constructed in January 1926 and originally served as a receiving area for patients requiring emergency care at the Tokyo Imperial University Medical College affiliated Clinic (currently the University of Tokyo Hospital). The facility was later renovated and selected as one of Tokyo’s Designated Historical Structures on March 30th, 2004.
