Having trouble?

We have created our new Student Advice and Counseling Center so that everyone can come and talk to us about any kind of problem. The Center’s main focus is providing counseling to students along with learning support. We hope to facilitate Hokkaido University students’ personal development, in addition to supporting their education and research.

Maybe you just want to talk, or you feel a little down. Maybe you have some problem, but you don’t know what to do so you want some advice. If you feel like this or have other troubles, please don’t hesitate to come and talk to us.
