Where You Will Study

Meiji University was founded in January 1881 as the Meiji Law School by a group of young lawyers. Ranking solidly among the best universities in Japan, Meiji University has expanded as one of the prominent private universities of Japan, celebrating its 130th anniversary in 2011. Along with excellent teaching staff, all of the University's campuses are linked with other institutions and facilities for education and research and feature the latest facilities, equipment and so on for extracurricular activities. Providing steady education and research opportunities, Meiji University aims to make dramatic advances into the world as the top 21st-century urban university in Japan. To this end, Meiji University has partnered with the College of Built Environments to allow University of Washington students the opportunity to study in Japan.
