Rules of Living

★ Exchanging greetings

Due to the structure of Bioscience Building, there is a tendency to be alienated from the neighbors. Please remind yourselves to exchange greetings. Students who do not follow this idea may be asked for their name and laboratory/department and receive a warning. Also in laboratories, we encourage everyone to greet each other to make sure that doors are locked and to keep suspicious individuals out.

★ Smoking

1) Smoking is basically not permitted inside the Bioscience Building.
2)At B1F of the Bioscience Building, there is a smoking section. However, please observe good manners by not littering cigarette butts or leaving any rubbish when you smoke. Also, you must make sure not to cause a fire. Take maximum precautions and be aware that causing a fire would also greatly affect your own career.

★ Walking in shoes

1) You can enter the building with your shoes on, but when it is raining or when the roads are muddy, make sure to wipe the bottom of your shoes with the entrance mat before entering the building.
2) Walking into the common device room with shoes on is strictly prohibited. Make sure to put on slippers. When you take your shoes off, make sure to place them inside the shoe locker. Note that some laboratories may also prohibit entry with shoes on, so be sure to always obey the rules when you visit a laboratory.
3) Be careful with the floor material and the chemical resistance of the wax in the laboratory rooms including the common device room.

★ About parking your bicycle/motorcycle/car

1) To commute by car, you need to obtain a parking permit. Ask a faculty member from the laboratory about the procedures. Your parking permit is to be placed by the front glass of your car so it is visible.
2) Since the campus is still going through maintenance, the roads inside the campus may be changed according to ongoing constructions, etc. Please be aware of future notices. Also, in case you drive on the east side of the campus for some reason, please be careful especially when driving in between Kashiwa Research Complex (Institute for Solid State Physics and Institute for Cosmic Ray Research) and the lower building, as sometimes people might jump onto the road. Take maximum precautions and be aware that causing an accident would also greatly affect your own career.
3) The speed limit inside the campus is 30km/h. Also make sure to always obey the road signs inside the campus. Speeding is dangerous as there are quite a lot of bumps.
4) Do not park in a place other than the specified car park.
5) Those who ride bicycles need to complete the registration at the laboratory, put the sticker for bicycles somewhere visible, and park the bicycle at the specified location. Bicycles without the sticker are removed periodically.
