Meijo University

名城大学

Meijo University was founded in 1926 and has a good reputation for its faculties of Science & Technology and Pharmacy. There are also departments of Law, Economics, Human Studies, Agriculture, Urban Science and Business Management.

The main Shiogamaguchi campus has been modernized over the last decade with the building of the 15-story Tower 75 and two new buildings housing multiple lecture halls.

Meijo's continuing popularity with Chubu students is due to its location near a subway station: Shiogamaguchi on the Tsurumai Line, the modern buildings and a number of popular eateries on campus such as Subway and MacDonald's.

Meijo also has an affiliated high school located out in Higashibiwajima not far from Nagoya Station.

Meijo's annual Open Day will be held this Sunday with the university festival taking place in the first week of November.
