Campus Life

Boundless Opportunities

At Hokkaido University, there is more to student life than just lectures and tutorials. An abundance of opportunities await International Students to become part of the many activities available on campus. Students can join one of over 250 clubs and societies, participate in sporting activities, visit the University’s museum, attend a university festival like Hokudai-Sai or just relax with friends in one of the many University eateries in between lectures. Hokkaido University offers a world of potential fun for students to obtain new experiences and to make new friends. This diversity means that every student can find something that suits them, and meet like-minded people to share their interests. Joining a club, circle, or society is simple! During Orientation Week of each semester, students just need to sign up at the club’s booth.
