Live Locally, Grow Globally

Osaka Univ. HallOsaka University Hall was originally constructed as the school building of the former Naniwa High School in 1928 under the old education system. After the reform of the educational system, the building was transferred to Osaka University. Heretofore known as "E-go Kan" [イ号館] to university staff, students, and alumni, it was renovated in 2011.
Once used as a liberal arts building and recently as the main building for general education, it was designated as a national tangible cultural asset in 2004.
In 2011, on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the university's founding, as a storehouse for memories of earlier times for Osaka University-related people and as a symbol of Osaka University's heritage and spirit, the building was renovated and reborn as Osaka University Hall.
