Getting to JCMU

Access Information

All students must submit their travel plans to the JCMU East Lansing office by a set deadline prior to departure. Specific instructions will be supplied to students after acceptance.

Escort to JCMU:

All JCMU students who arrive in Japan on their program arrival date at the indicated time and airport will be met by staff to escort them back to JCMU. Time and airport to be met at will vary by program.

Travelling to JCMU solo:

Students who arrive later than the specified time, at a different airport or on a different day must travel to JCMU on their own. Getting to JCMU by oneself can seem like a daunting task, but many past participants say it's not as hard as they originally thought.

Students who elect to travel solo may check in during normal JCMU office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Students arriving after 5:30 p.m. must make prior arrangements to do so. All students must arrive by 10:00 p.m. on move-in day.
