Campus & Facilities

KAIT, Disaster Resistant Campus

KAIT, Disaster Resistant Campus

The campus is located at 63 meters above sea level, where the level of groundwater is low, with minimum possibilities of liquefaction, expecting relatively very little shaking at the time of an earthquake. In addition, 17.3% of the buildings were built after the Great East Japan Earthquake (2011), and those built after the Great Hanshin Earthquake (1995) account for 64.5% of the total. Other buildings also provide enough earthquake resistance measures and we proudly remark that it is a strong campus for earthquakes.
