Chuo University was first established in 1885 as the English Law School. Today it is one of the largest and most prestigious private universities in Japan and is particularly renowned for accomplishments in law, policy studies, science and engineering. Many of Chuo's Business and Economics graduates have gone on to become top-level executives at major corporations in Japan and abroad.

During Chuo's 134-year history, they have grown their specialized School of Law into a comprehensive university with eight faculties, seven graduate schools, and two professional graduate schools, in addition to nine research institutes, four affiliated high schools, and two affiliated junior high schools. Chuo still continues to produce many of Japan's judges, prosecutors and lawyers. Chuo was founded on the spirit of “Fostering the Ability to Apply Knowledge to Practice”, and they aspire to provide practical education that helps young people meet the demands of today’s global society.

  • Tama Campus

    Tokyo, Japan Campus Website

    The Tama Campus is surrounded by the lush greenery of suburban western Tokyo in the Tama Hills Natural Park, about 45 minutes by train from the downtown Shinjuku area.

    Tama Campus is home to five faculties: Law, Economics, Commerce, Letters, and Policy Studies, and its’ graduate schools. Situated on 518,401㎡ of land, the expansive campus houses the Faculties as well as research facilities, clubs and circles, libraries, and indoor/outdoor sports facilities. Also on campus is the “Honoo-no-Tou” building, where students can find an ideal study environment to prepare for the extremely difficult national examinations.

    Students at Tama will find everything they need on campus, from a Co-Op building that runs nine different eateries to the Co-Op store, which has daily goods and services such as a pharmacy and Chuo gear. There is also an on-campus barber shop and beauty salon. Students will also have access to a doctor, dentist and mental health professionals in the clinic area.

    For students looking for an off-campus area to shop, explore or just hang out, Chuo's Tama Monorail stop is only twenty minutes from the downtown urban center of Tachikawa, and ten minutes from Tama Center, which houses shopping centers, restaurants, and the theme park Sanrio Puroland.
