To: Students, Faculty Members, and Employees


The University of Tsukuba is able to start extracurricular activities with attention to the prevention of infection spread from October 1, 2020 (Thursday). Therefore, organizations wishing to start their extracurricular activities should strictly adhere to “Guidelines for the Start of Organizations’ Activities in the Extracurricular Activities of the University of Tsukuba” dated October 1, 2020.

So, we would like to ask students, faculty members, and employees to continue thoroughly implementing the prevention of the spread of infection and take appropriate action including putting the three basics for preventing infection of “social distancing”, “wearing a mask”, and “washing hands” found in “Examples of New Lifestyle Practices” (Novel Coronavirus Expert Meeting of June 19, 2020) into practice as basic infection prevention measures for each person.

By this notice, the “Change in the Mode of Operations of Our University” dated September 1, 2020 is abolished.

Furthermore, we will keep you updated if any change is made upon future developments in the country, Ibaraki Prefecture, etc.
