Recently, HU has identified confirmed cases of COVID-19 among students attending the Higashi-Hiroshima Campus. All cases are mild and are believed to have acquired infection off-campus. HU is doing its utmost to prevent the spread of infection. Classes and research activities at each campus will continue as usual. 

There is no change in the schedule of the final examinations, which began on February 1. The cafeteria, CO-OP store, and libraries are open as usual.

To HU students, parents, and guardians, please be assured that HU is making a concerted effort towards preventing infection.

About financial support

HU started the Emergency Aid for HU Students, an initiative to help home and international students facing financial difficulties due to a sharp decrease in income from their part-time works. The Aid issues 30,000 yen per month to each qualified individual.
