TUS features a variety of top-class facilities. Cultural facilities include libraries in each campus and the Science and Technology Museum. Every TUS campus also features a range of athletic facilities to help maintain the health of students and members of the faculty.

Libraries

Tokyo University of Science has four major libraries in addition to the field-specific document and reference collections run by individual schools and departments. The four major university libraries are the Kagurazaka Library (located on the ninth, tenth, and eleventh floors of Building No. 1 on the Kagurazaka campus),the Katsushika Library on the Katsushika campus, the Commemorative Library (Noda Library) on the Noda campus and the Oshamambe Library on the Oshamambe campus. The university runs a computer system that links these four libraries with the Tokyo University of Science, Suwa Library, allowing students and members of the faculty to easily search and access materials throughout the TUS library system. We are also working on a system that would allow a variety of electronic resources, including databases, online journals, and electronic books, to be accessed from anywhere in the university.

Athletic Facilities

Every TUS campus features a range of athletic facilities to help maintain the health of students and members of the faculty and build their strength. In addition to the standard physical education courses, athletic facilities throughout the university are available for extracurricular activities, social events, and a variety of other activities.

Seminar House

TUS is leading the way among universities with its special classroom facility called "Seminar House" on the Noda campus. The Seminar House includes a full range of special-purpose rooms, including large assembly halls, seminar rooms, PC laboratories, meeting rooms, accommodations, a cafeteria, and more.

Other Facilities

Other TUS facilities range from the on-campus Student Training Center to those that exist beyond the borders of its campuses, such as the Daigo Training Center. These facilities are available for seminars, training events, or overnight club activities.

Science and Technology Museum

The Science and Technology Museum was constructed to commemorate the 110th anniversary of the University's founding, and its Meiji-era architecture now stands as a symbol of the Kagurazaka campus. The late Fuku Futamura, graduate of the class of 1941, was a proponent of scientific and technological education and research who worked to restore the two-story wooden building that housed the Tokyo College of Science (predecessor to the modern Tokyo University of Science; built in 1964). The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM (excluding university holidays), and houses a collection of old science books, the first Japanese-made computer, the first English-Japanese dictionary written in Japan, a gramophone invented by Thomas Edison, and numerous other treasures. Visitors can enjoy a variety of exhibits, including hands-on and interactive displays.

Morito Memorial Hall

The Morito Memorial Hall was established through a contribution from Yuko Morito, graduate of the Faculty of Science Division I Department of Applied Chemistry and former President and CEO of Moritex Corporation.
