The "long-term fatigue and coping"
in self-restraint life
in response to the COVID-19

In order to prevent the expansion of the COVID-19, Nagoya University has requested students to restrain your activities since April, and all classes are now online. We are sure that you must have faced many changes on your campus life. The Student Services Center have received many concerns and complaints about online courses and restrained life.
Some hoped that normal life would return in the fall semester, but it is likely that the restricted status in campus life will continue for a while.
We, the Student Services Center, are concerned that you may have been stressed out by such a long period of self-restraint. Many of you may be unknowingly suffering from fatigue and frustration. As summer vacation is coming up, some of you may be struggling to figure out how to spend time alone in your room.
The Student Services Center continues to provide consultation services to students during the summer holidays (except during the Bon holidays). We also offer remote counseling over the phone and online. Please contact us if you are stressed or have any problems.
For more information on how you can deal with stress on your own, please visit our website on the psychological stress associated with the new coronavirus outbreak and how to deal with it.
The Student Services Center also uses Twitter to keep you up to date with the latest news. We will post messages as well as movie and novel recommendations from our staff soon. We hope you find this site useful when you are spending some socially distant time.
Considering rapid increase of the number of COVID-19 infected people, Nagoya University decided to change alert categories of activity guidelines to "C: a state of emergency". Periodic examinations on campus will be cancelled and most of classes will be held online using ICT since July 27.

To those who have needs for consultation

Since April, your life has changed drastically, as you have to refrain from living you like and all your classes become online. We understand that you are at a loss and are worried about what to do.
The Student Services Center will resume offering face-to-face consultations on June 1, which had been suspended since April. Appointments can be made by phone or email from Monday, May 25.
Please take note of the following information for face-to-face consultations.
  • Please make an appointment in advance for your consultation.
  • Please wear a mask and disinfect your hands at the time of your consultation. We also ask for your understanding that our staff will be wearing masks.
  • For the time being, face-to-face consultations may be shorter than usual.
  • If you are sick or sick with a cold, please do not overdo it and cancel your appointment. In such cases, we need you to contact us in advance by phone or other means. You can also consult with us by phone or email instead of face-to-face.
Please do not hesitate to make an appointment if you wish to have a consultation while noting the above. We still accept consultations by email and phone, as in the past. To everyone who has a problem, let's think about it together with the Center's staff!

About the Students Services Center

The Students Services Center was established to help students achieve fulfilling lives on campus by improving the existing systems for Student Counseling Services, Mental Health Support, Inclusive Learning, Career Counseling, and Ability Suport.

The worries and problems that confront you on a daily basis also provide a precious opportunity for self-reflection. While you may usually be able to work through such issues with the help of your friends, seniors, supervisor or family, in daily life, it can be difficult to find the time to contemplate the worries and problems we face. Wouldn't it be great to try speaking with us at the Students Services Center at such times?

The Students Services Center is more than just a place to come for advice and suggestions. It is also a place where you can find the clues to solve your problems and grow up, by putting your feelings and ideas into words and sorting up them through talking with staff. Even though your consultation with us will be to solve your practical problems, it may also lead you to reflect on yourself and to view yourself in a different light.
