Kyushu University Safety Confirmation System

Kyushu University operates the ANPIC safety confirmation system to ensure that the safety confirmation process can be carried out promptly and without fail in the event of a major disaster or other crisis.

If an earthquake of intensity 5 upper or greater, or any other major disaster occurs in Fukuoka Prefecture or neighboring prefectures, this system will automatically send a mass email to the Primary Mail Service email addresses (for Students/Staff Members) of the university's students and faculty/staff members, asking them to confirm their safety.

If such an emergency occurs, please ensure your safety promptly and report your safety status to the university's headquarters.

When a major disaster occurs, it is likely that the University may not be able to contact you immediately due to delays in the email service. To be prepared for such a situation, please carry out the initial setup process (full registration) so that you can receive notices from and send reports to the safety confirmation system via the app and LINE on your smartphone or other communication device. If you usually use feature phone, please add its e-mail address to this system.

(This system may also be used to send mass emails for other purposes, such as sending out questionnaires for surveys targeting students and faculty/staff members.)

Inquires about the safety confirmation system

If you have any questions when registering with or using the safety confirmation system but are unable to find answers in any of the guides and materials listed above, you can send inquiries by email to anpic[at]

*Please replace [at] with @ when sending an e-mail.

When sending inquiries, please also provide us with information about the device you are using (including the versions of the OS and app on your personal computer, smartphone, etc.). Please note that it may take a few days to reply to your inquiry (we might need to forward your inquiry to the service provider, etc.)
