Kansai University Library

 Kansai University has four libraries, one at each of the following campuses: Senriyama, Takatsuki, Takatsuki Muse, and Sakai. Each of them boasts top-class facilities and book collections.  This includes everything from classical book collections to digital materials.  Each library provides educational and research support with comprehensive services.

Kansai University Museum

 Kansai University's museum was opened in 1994 and has around 60,000 items in its collection, including materials related to archeology, history, and folklore as well as arts and crafts and nature.  The museum is also used for academic research, classes on archeology and history, and is a site for practical courses aimed at obtaining qualifications as a curator.

Center for Information Technology

 This Center takes advantage of its state-of-the-art ICT environment and network―which is open to the world―to support advanced research as IT develops, as well as cutting-edge education.  The Center has a computer area and printers that can be freely used by students as well as faculty, and there is also an on-campus Wi-Fi access point, so personal computers, smartphones, tablets, and other devices can be used with the campus network.

Book Publishing

 Kansai University Press, which is positioned as a department of an educational-institution administrative organization instead of as an independent organization, publishes academic books, university course materials, and the like.  In particular, Kansai University Press focuses on publishing the research results of full-time faculty members.  Kansai University Press has also established a publication grant system (Regulations on Grants-in-Aid for Publication of Research Results), and actively strives to publish high quality research.

Seminar Houses

 Our University has five seminar houses throughout Japan, all of which are intended to support education and research activities while developing rich interpersonal relationships.  These facilities are located in quiet environments surrounded by nature, and they can be used for research, training, seminar training camps, and other curriculum activities as well as club and other extracurricular activities.
