About the institution

Found­ed in 1877, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tokyo is the old­est and largest of Japan’s nation­al uni­ver­si­ties. Cur­rent­ly, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tokyo is com­prised of 10 Fac­ul­ties, 15 Grad­u­ate Schools, 11 affil­i­at­ed research insti­tutes (includ­ing the Research Cen­ter for Advanced Sci­ence and Tech­nol­o­gy), four Uni­ver­si­ty Joint Edu­ca­tion and Research Insti­tutes, three Insti­tutes for Advanced Study, four Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary Research Insti­tutes, three Nation­al Joint-Use Insti­tutes and over 40 Col­lab­o­ra­tive Research Orga­ni­za­tions. Fur­ther­more, the Fac­ul­ties, Grad­u­ate Schools and research insti­tutes have facil­i­ties asso­ci­at­ed with them; for instance, the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tokyo Hos­pi­tal is one such facility.
