Graduate School of Law computer room

Room and facilities

The Computer Room is room 104, on the first floor of the prefab annex to the Law building. PCs in the room have the following software installed: Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access).

Key card

Use your student ID card as a swipe card to enter the Computer Room. If you have been issued a paper student ID card, you can obtain a magnetic card by submitting the Application Form for a magnetic ID card to the Student Affairs Section of the Graduate School of Law.


Please comply with the following rules when using the computer room:

  1. Do not eat, drink or bring open food containers into the room. This can be distracting to other users, and spills can damage the equipment.
  2. Refrain from using cell phones in the room. When entering the room, set your phone to manner mode or turn off its power. Ringing phones and conversations are a distraction to others. If you need to answer the phone, take the call outside of the room.
  3. Restore manuals and other materials to their proper place after use. Don’t remove materials or equipment from the room.
  4. Students of other faculties may use the room if they need the facilities for their studies, but should do so in the normal way, by requesting a personal key card for full access. Please direct such queries to Ms Tomizaki.
  5. For your own security and for the security of the University network as a whole, Do not share your user ID and password with other people.
  6. To protect your personal information, be sure to fully log out from PCs or turn the power off cleanly when your session is finished.
  7. The PCs in the room have been configured to protect personal information, to maximize stability, and to be convenient to most users. Do not permanently change settings that may affect other users.
  8. About printing. In the computer room, you will find a personal computer connected to the copy machine. The copy machine will also work as a printer; you can print files by connecting a USB memory to the personal computer, and printing in the normal way. A copy card, which can be purchased at the University Co-op, is required for printing. The printing cost for one black-and-white page is 10 yen, and one page printed in color costs 50 yen. For most print jobs, you may find it more economical to purchase a printer for use in your study room.

These rules are important to maximize the benefit of the computer room for all students. Those who do not comply with them may be denied access to this facility.
