Message from the Disaster Management Office


‘Congratulations on your admission’  (2024.4.3)

To all the new students, congratulations on your admission to Nagoya University. The Disaster Management Office has a request for all of you who are starting a new student life with hope for the future in your heart. A major earthquake along the Nankai Trough will cause a major disaster around the Tokai region including Nagoya University in the near future. In addition to this, recent years have seen frequent occurrences of wind and flood damage due to torrential rains and typhoons across Japan. When studying at Nagoya University, in order to protect lives from earthquakes, heavy rains and typhoons, and to respond appropriately to disasters, it is necessary to select housing, take indoor safety measures, prepare emergency supplies, and confirm evacuation methods and guidelines for evacuation actions. In addition, there are many things in the university that are dangerous during an earthquake, such as experimental equipment, chemicals, and heavy fixtures. Don’t think of earthquake disasters and wind and flood damage as someone else’s business, and be prepared in advance. Please be sure to read the Nagoya University Disaster Prevention Guide and the Earthquake Manual that will be distributed to everyone. We will send you an email to remind you of your safety in the event of a earthquake disaster. For new students, the email will be sent to the email address assigned to each student by Tokai National Higher Education and Research System. Please set your smartphone etc. so that you can receive it anytime, anywhere.
