Aoyama Gakuin University offers a wide range of facilities for the wellbeing and safety of students.
The student health clinics provide emergency treatment and regular health checks for early diagnosis and prevention of illness. The staff can provide you with referrals to specialist medical institutions, issue health certificates and related documents, and offer advice and counseling for your health. Mental health consultants are also available. If you have any problem, just visit the clinics either in Aoyama campus or in Sagamihara campus.
If students with disabilities need support for their classes, the center will support them so that they are able to go through their university life like any other students. Professional coordinators together with the students discuss the necessary support needed, and offer that support in conjunction with related departments and the college / graduate course the students belong to.
Established in accordance with the founding philosophy of Aoyama Gakuin, the Center of Religion seeks to instill the Christian education ethics at the core of the character guidance ethos of our institution. The Center pursues a range of activities, along with associated research.

AGU has two housing facilities for international students.
I-House Musashi-Kosugi is a brand-new 128-room coed dormitory operated by AGU. Half of the rooms will be occupied by international students, including exchange students, and the other half by Japanese students. Resident Assistants, or RAs, live there to assist international residents with day-to-day matters and to help facilitate communication. RAs also organize social events and floor meetings to encourage interactions among residents.
I-House Sagamihara is a coed dormitory right in front of the Sagamihara campus with a separate floor for females only. It currently houses the majority of international students attending the Sagamihara campus and is beneficial for both researchers and students attending this campus as it affords great opportunities to interact with fellow Japanese students.
