Kanazawa-hakkei (Hakkei) campus is YCU's main campus, which houses the university's trademark clock tower and ginkgo tree-lined main streets.

Student Life, Club Activities and Societies in Fukuura Campus

Located just a couple of minutes away from our Hakkei campus on the Seaside Line, Fukuura campus is second-home to most of our medical students. Although smaller in size compared to our main campus, Fukuura campus is not only on the same grounds as one of our university hospitals, it also has its very own facilities, such as a baseball field, tennis courts, a gymnasium, and so much more. Our Fukuura campus is also given the moniker 'YCU Med' when it comes to clubs and societies based in the seaside campus.

Snapshots from YCU


YCU Campus Life

YCU students work hard when comes to their studies, but know how to have fun when it comes to club activities. On top of that, a lot of our students also have part-time jobs. Many of our students think of themselves as pretty relaxed, and that their university is small, but cozy and warm. People know each other, students and teachers regularly talk, or even have lunch breaks together. Nonetheless, behind that relaxed front are very ambitious young minds, many of whom strive to think of ways to make the city of Yokohama - and the world, a better place. The best way to experience all this is to come and see for yourself, so, we hope to see more of you here in YCU in the future!
