University Events

The University of Tsukuba holds various events with the aim of promoting exchanges between students and faculty members.

Welcome Festival

This festival is held for the incoming first-year students on the day of the entrance ceremony by "Sankei," which is made up of three extracurricular activity groups. The aim of the festival is to exchange and promote mutual friendship between enrolled students and the incoming first-year students. This event is one of the unique events of the University of Tsukuba.


* The University of Tsukuba grants outstanding extracurricular activity groups the status of "extracurricular activity group". The extracurricular activity groups are divided into three categories: culture, physical, and art. Within each category, group leaders hold meetings at the "Keibetsu Sekininsha Kaigi". Members of the "Keibetsu Sekininsha Kaigi" meet at the "Circle Rengo Kai", which organize various activities authorized by the university.
