The Hiroshima University Library is composed of five buildings with a combined floor area of 28,000 (m2), making it one of the largest libraries in the country. It has a collection of around 3.28 million books, 60% of which are housed in the library. All library materials are managed in an integrated manner so that they can be utilized by the entire university as shared sources of academic and technical information.
The Student Plaza is a four storied ferroconcrete building situated on the west of “Budou Pond” at the heart of the Higashi-Hiroshima Campus. At this facility, Hiroshima University provides its students with “integral student support,” for example, support for school life, finding employment, and for international students. The first floor is open to students and serves as a “Place for Student Interaction” where international students and Japanese students could interact, transcending the boundaries of schools and graduate schools.
"la place" is the nickname of the glass-walled building in Satake Square in front of the Central Library. It was built with environmental considerations and has solar panels on the roof. It was established to serve as a hub facility where students, faculty members and others could gather at Satake Square and the surrounding area for "intellectual festivities" (cultural activities befitting of a university having a free and academic atmosphere). The Hiroshima University Branch of the Mermaid Cafe is open for business and ready to serve students, faculty members and local residents.
