University of Niigata Prefecture Library
A sophisticated atmosphere prevails in the library. Students are able to search the library's collection using computer terminals located in the building or from outside the university via the Internet or mobile phone.
Self Access Learning Center
The Self Access Learning Center (SALC) is a language study support facility available to all students. The center employs Japanese staff proficient in English and contains a rich variety of self-study resources (such as CDs, DVDs, foreign magazines etc.) that provide the necessary reinforcement required by students for effective English study. A "speak English only" rule in the center (with the exception of the information desk) facilitates active English communication between students on a daily basis.
This classroom contains a wide variety of multimedia resources for English language learning. Computers equipped with microphone-enabled headsets allow students to practice English conversation interactively with their friends, check their own pronunciation and accent, and comprehend English at their own pace and level of understanding. The CALL classroom may be used freely whenever lessons are not being held.
Students can use this room to improve their information processing skills in a friendly network environment. The room is used for classes in information literacy and introductions to network presentation.
The university has a cooperative-run cafeteria and general store. The cafeteria features a rich buffet menu and is a popular place for students to wind down.
The cooperative operated at the university sells books, stationary, and foodstuffs. The cooperative can also receive applications for driving schools and various types of certification examinations.
