APU is located on the top of a mountain--that means we get the best view when it comes to the lush greenery, city, and ocean down below. The beautiful view serves as a pleasant reminder to take things easy when life gets stressful.
This is the iconic center of APU's campus! You might recognize it from the selfies our students often post in front of the towers.
The APU gym exists to provide students, faculty, and staff with a place to exercise while doing sports or activities they love. Within the gym, there is a weight room, a gymnasium for sports like basketball or volleyball, as well as rooms for martial arts practices. Using the reservation system, tennis courts and other facilities can be borrowed for group or individual use.
Only a five minute walk from the main part of APU’s dynamic campus, this modern dormitory offers you a peaceful haven for your studies and private life while giving you the opportunity to experience world cultures and make lifelong friendships. With students from more than fifty countries living together under one roof, the time you spend here will be unforgettable.
AP House, our on-campus dorm, is only a 5 minute walk away from the main campus. There are 378 shared rooms and 932 single rooms with 44 communal kitchens, free laundry facilities, private shower rooms, Japanese-style public baths, computer rooms, study rooms, a small convenience store, indoor entertainment facilities such as billiards, and outdoor basketball courts. Entry to the dorm is protected by an auto-lock system which can only be opened by the ID cards of current residents. Security guards are in the dormitory all 24 hours of the day. Each and every room has a refrigerator, air conditioning/heating unit, and free internet access. Rent is 39,000 JPY per month including utilities.
Each floor has 2 Resident Assistants to help you become accustomed to your new life at APU. If you have any problems, feel free to go to them for help! They also plan fun activities for residents of AP House to meet other students, make friends, and even have fun with the local community!
Found side by side, these two offices offer support to current students. Student Office gives advice and works with students to apply for scholarships, solve problems and even plan some extra curricular activities like local home-stay or multicultural weeks. The Career Office is mostly used by 3rd and 4th years students (although anyone is welcome) to help plan and practice for their job-hunting. Job hunting in Japan is generally quite structured in Japan, so the Career Office helps students to prepare by teaching them how to write a CV, how to interview, what they need to know, and also by conducting things like mock interviews.
Our library offers users a wide range of books, academic databases, and materials related to Asia Pacific studies, international management, language study, and much more. Students can also request to borrow books in Ritsumeikan University's library if it cannot be found here. The library itself is divided into seven main areas which students can use to fit their specific needs whether it be group study, self-study, presentation practice, or even just designated areas to view documentaries or movies. Desktop computers and laptops are also available for student use during open hours.
As of February 2018, APU has nine alumni working in various offices in the United Nations and several other alumni working as diplomats for their countries. Mr. Morse Flores, APU Class of 2006, who works as a Human Rights Officer for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights came back to APU on January 15-19, 2018 to coach students on the mindset and skills that they need to seek for a career in the United Nations.
