For Faculty, Staff and Students

Located in the heart of the Financial District in San Francisco, Osaka University North American Center for Academic Initiatives is open to all faculty, staff, and students from Osaka University.  Please feel free to stop by when you come to North America whether it is for studying, research, or even for a short visit!

Our office can be utilized for a wide range of activities including a quiet work space, admissions interviews with American students, and faculty/researcher meetings.  We have a video teleconference system between Osaka and San Francisco, that is available for use, and we can also reserve a conference room in our office building.  We offer Wi-Fi, Mac and PC computers, copy and FAX machines, telephone and other resources to faculty, staff and students from Osaka University.  In order for us to assist you to the best of our abilities, please contact us in advance and keep us updated with your schedule. 

We are happy to help you arrange meetings with local universities or institutes and we can also provide local information on accommodations, transportation, restaurants and shops as well as support in case of emergency.

Please stop by your Osaka University North American Center for Academic Initiatives when you are in the area!

We look forward to hearing from you!
