We would like to inform you that we will do so.

Installation background

Rikkyo University is a university with campuses in Ikebukuro, Tokyo and Niiza, Saitama, with 11 undergraduate and graduate schools. Nowadays, smartphones have become an essential part of daily life, and many people are worried about using them when there is a shortage of gigabytes at the end of the month, seminar trips, studying abroad, and when traveling abroad. We decided to install the WiFi BOX to provide a communication environment and allow many students and faculty to use the WiFi BOX. WiFiBOX can also be used in Japan, so it can also be used by international students enrolled in the program.
Additionally, WiFi BOXes are currently installed at stations and commercial facilities in Tokyo, but this is the first time they have been installed in the Ikebukuro area. Ikebukuro Campus St. Paul Plaza can be accessed by people other than students and faculty, and since it is located about a 7-minute walk from the west exit of Ikebukuro Station, this installation allows it to be used as a regular pick-up/drop-off location. As a result, you will be able to use it more conveniently in areas near you.
