How to enter buildings in Wako Campus

To enter the most of buildings in Wako Campus, we need an ID card. For participants in this workshop, a temporal entrance card will be issued. You can recieve the card at West Gate Guard Station or at an on-campus guest house (if you stay at the house). If you stay outside Wako Campus, please visit the guard station at "West Gate" first. Once you get the card, you can enter any buildings by holding the card over readers at the front of automatic doors. You can keep the card during your stay, i.e., you don't need to return it everyday. But please show the card to a guard at West Gate when you come into the campus again after you go outside. Please make sure you return the card to the guard station at the end of your stay.

In the campus, there are several cafeterias (e.g., C61, C72), but payments by cash are not accepted at the cafeterias. Instead, you can pay by a prepaid IC card for public transport, e.g., Suica, PASMO (See here). You can recharge it at the entrances of cafeterias. On the 2nd floor of the building C61, there is a small convenience store (you can pay by cash).


We have on-campus housing units (I-House) in Wako Campus. If you are interested in staying at I-House, we will book a room for you (only for VIPs). For the details, e.g., housing rates, please visit the link below.
