What's NEW


"E Go Kan" Renewal -- join us!

2010-7-12 (Mon) - 2010-7-16 (Fri)

Beginning this August, the E Go Kan [イ号館], Osaka University's oldest building and a national tangible cultural asset, will be renovated in order to make it earthquake resistant. This major renovation will take until April 2011. Prior to its closing, we plan to use the communication gallery and multipurpose studio in the E Go Kan in several major events. In other words, rather than just bidding a quiet "See you later" to the building, we want to celebrate the E Go Kan's coming renewal and rebirth with a grand send-off!

Won't you join us!? Whether you're staff, student, or just someone with an affection for Osaka University and the E Go Kan, join us! Everyone's welcome!
Dates: Monday, July 11 ~ Friday, July 16

Time: around 6:00 ~ around 8:00 p.m. Times vary day to day. Please note that the event on Thursday, July 15, is a closed event.
