JCMU Campus


The JCMU campus consists of beautiful and spacious buildings configured in an academic building, an adjoining residence hall facility, a lakefront garden, a basketball court and a tennis court, as well as open space for students to play ball. A CoCo's restaurant is adjacent to the academic building and students often frequent the restaurant for lunch. The entire facility is on the waterfront of Lake Biwa with a public beach only a short walk away.

Residence Hall

The residence hall, located next to the academic building, contains a newly refurbished lobby/lounge, a computer lab, laundry room, television/recreation room, fitness room, student apartments and faculty apartments. The building contains apartment suites designed to accommodate a total of 70 students, live-in faculty and administrative staff. Apartment suites have two single bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen. There are also two apartments specially designed to be fully accessible to students with disabilities.

Academic Building

The academic building contains classrooms, a library, two Computer Assisted Learning Laboratories, Apple Hall (the main lobby and spacious lounge), the Shahakunage Room (a traditional Japanese-style room), conference rooms, faculty and administrative offices, and a restaurant.
