Following the extension of the state of emergency in Fukuoka Prefecture until Thursday, September 30, Kyushu University has decided to maintain its guidance level at “Level 2.5: Restrictions (Medium).” The Fall 2021 Commencement, scheduled on Friday, September 24, will be held in-person and online hybrid with thorough preventative measures in place. The attendees are limited to those who have applied in advance. 

Major Restrictions

Student Extracurricular Activities

  • All student groups and extracurricular activities will, in principle, be suspended, and facilities, including gymnasiums, will be closed.


  • We recommend staggering working hours and working from home to the extent possible without impeding essential educational and research activities on campus.

Travel & Going Out

  • If you experience fatigue or have cold-like symptoms such as fever, do not go out or travel to another area and consult your family doctor or a medical institution in your area via telephone.
  • Refrain from going out unless absolutely necessary. (Especially after 8:00 p.m.)
  • Avoid restaurants and bars that have not responded to closure requests from the prefectural government without permission.
  • In general, refrain from travel and business trips across prefectures and consider holding meetings remotely whenever possible.
  • In the event that travel to another prefecture is unavoidable, be sure to undergo a PCR test available at your departure and arrival airports to confirm whether or not you have COVID-19.
