iCLA aims to accommodate every student’s dietary needs and restrictions in the meal plan. For students whose dietary restrictions we unfortunately cannot provide for, we have a spacious studio kitchen in the cafeteria with capacity for several students to cook at once.


For students who would like extra help on their language studies, we have a Language Acquisition Center in the iCLA building. LAC is split between the Language Media Center and the Reading Center. Inside the Language Media Center are computers and various digital materials to assist with individual language learning. At our Reading Center, students have access to an extensive library of English and Japanese language reading material.


Yamanashi Gakuin University hosts large-scale school festivals twice a year where student clubs and local shop vendors set up booths to sell merchandise and festival foods. This is a chance for students to showcase their talents, as there are many performances and exhibits by students to be enjoyed. Many local residents also come by to join in on the festivities. Dressing up in summer yukata for the university’s Tanabata event is especially popular with students.

iCLA also hosts its own department-wide events throughout the year. We are always welcoming new event ideas from students, so don’t hesitate to let us know!


We have many student clubs, both sports and arts-related. Joining a club is a great opportunity for domestic students and international students to get to know one another. New students typically join clubs at the start of the academic year in April, but many clubs welcome new members all year round. Examples of clubs include the Photography Club, Animation Club, Ski Club, Kendo Club, and many more.

We have a wide range of university clubs, so there’s something for everyone. If not, start your own club!
