On Thursday, April 14 and on Saturday, April 16, there was a magnitude 6.5 earthquake and magnitude 7.3 earthquake that occurred in Kumamoto prefecture, located in the Kyushu region (southwestern island), approximately 870 kilometers away from Senshu University’s Ikuta Campus. Senshu University did not experience any damage nor was anyone at Senshu University injured, and the surrounding public transportation was not affected in any way. Classes were conducted as usual.
To offer reassurance, the Senshu International House (dormitory for international students) was designed with earthquakes in mind. Therefore, the building can withstand considerably large earthquakes if any were to occur.
