Notice(Measures to Be Taken for Students)[May-27]


May 27, 2020 (partial amendment)

To all students:

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Response Headquarter,
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT)

From Monday, June 15, we plan on lifting the campus entry restrictions.

 On May 25, the Japanese Government lifted the state of emergency in response to the novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) in all prefectures including the special alert prefectures. On May 26, restrictions of university activities are lifted based on Step 1 of the “Road Map to Overcome COVID-19 ", which is released by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government on May 22. It can be said the current status of COVID-19 spread in Tokyo has reached Phase 5 (Post-Pandemic Phase) according to the summary of the Japan Society for Occupational Health (reference below). However, the spread of COVID-19 has not come to an end yet. In addition, according to the national government’s “Basic Policies for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control”, travelling across borders among prefectures including the case of Tokyo should be dealt with utmost caution for the time being.
 At TUAT, as we have announced earlier, campus entry restrictions will be lifted to allow students to attend school from Monday, June 15. However, TUAT students should be aware of the policies of the faculty/graduate school you belong to, the guidelines provided by the related local governments, as well as the contents of TUAT’s Notice and Code of Conduct posted on the TUAT website on April 6. We expect our students to take actions not to spread the infection, such as protecting themselves from the virus and preventing infection transmission to others.

  • After the restrictions such as on travelling across borders among prefectures are lifted; and while being cautious not to lead to infection transmission and while checking the implementation status of the face-to-face lectures, prepare your study environment, such as coming to Tokyo from your parents’ house.
  • The University and faculty/graduate school plan on releasing the campus entry restrictions and start face-to-face lectures in classrooms where possible from Monday, June 15, while taking infection control measures.
  • To those who wish not to come to Tokyo or not to come to school due to concerns on infection, we will take account of the situation as much as possible such as by communicating with the student online and sending lecture video clips to the student. Please contact the student committee or your supervisor/advising professor.
  • TUAT’s correspondence for lectures in the first quarter (until July 31) and second quarter (August 17 – September 30) is as follows. Also, please check the WEB Bulletin Board or TUAT website, etc. regularly.
  1. Until Saturday, June 13, only online lectures will be available.
  2. Please be sure to complete your course registration (June 1-12) and course registration confirmation (June 16-18) on SPICA. Your performance results of/until the previous quarter can be viewed on SPICA between June 1 and June 18.
  3. In order to avoid the three conditions (3Cs) that facilitate the transmission of infectious disease (closed spaces, crowds, and close contact) in the classrooms and during commuting to school, a number of lectures will be held online only throughout the first quarter.
  4. The lecture schedule, examination period, etc. of each lecture on/after Monday, June 15 will be announced by each faculty/graduate school.
  5. Depending on each course, some courses may be involved with extra class time for supplementary lectures, report submission, additional online lectures, etc.
  6. For courses that are not suitable for online lectures, experimental training courses and lectures that involve practical skills such as physical education, major changes to the lecture start timing and ways the course is conducted, etc. will be made.
  7. All overseas student dispatches scheduled for the second quarter have been cancelled.
  8. In addition to intensive lectures and practical training; experimental training and supplementary lectures, etc. originally planned for the first quarter may be held during the second quarter.
  9. Changes in laboratories' division requirements and timings, and other necessary measures will be posted on the WEB bulletin board. In addition, there may be cases where the Board of Education, student committee, supervisor/advising professors contact you.
  • If you are not feeling well, please refrain from coming to school.
  • Please pay attention to the infection transmission during/after commuting to school.
  • Laboratory activities will be resumed if the three conditions (3Cs) are avoided on/after Monday, June 1 in descending order of necessity. Please follow the guidelines provided by the faculty/graduate school/laboratory you belong to. Also, please continue to carry the Campus Entry Permit signed by your supervisor/advising professor and student ID when entering the campus until Sunday, June 14.
  • Extra-curricular activities can be resumed after the campus entry restrictions are lifted, with the approval of the professor in charge of the activity, and if a "Request for Extracurricular Activities" is submitted to the office of the department and approved. However, please be sure to avoid the three conditions (3Cs), such as postponing the new student welcome parties, etc.. We request your continuous cooperation in this matter.
  • Announcement for tuition fee exemption application, postponement of payment, etc. may be posted on the University website. Please check the University website, etc. frequently.
  • If the national or local government’s state of emergency, etc. is re-declared; or restrictions on travelling across borders between prefectures are not lifted, etc., we will announce the changes again accordingly.
  • If you have any questions, please contact the Student Support Office of your department.
