Health Center

The Health Centers are located in Nishinomiya Uegahara Campus and Kobe Sanda Campus. They provide first-aid treatment for minor illnesses and injuries. If a student's illness or injury requires more care than can be provided at KGU, the Health Centers will refer the student to a nearby medical institution.

Students will experience stress until they are accustomed to their life away from home and to the environment of the university. This stress can weaken the immune system and cause students to catch colds or other illnesses more easily than usual. Students are encouraged to visit this facility whenever needed.

Counseling is provided on a reservation basis and privacy is strictly protected. More details are available on the CIEC Bulletin Board.
