Tsugumasa Muraoka, Governor of Yamaguchi Prefecture, submitted a document to the government's expert meeting that the movement to return to the city center and increase the number of students is rapidly progressing to private universities in the metropolitan area. It seems that it is a measure to respond to the decrease in the 18-year-old population and the stricter private school subsidy for the excess enrollment capacity implemented by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology from 2016, and if it is left as it is, it may affect the government's policy to curb the expansion of new universities in the metropolitan area. No.

 The material was created by Yamaguchi Prefecture based on information from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.According to it, the return to the city center of a private university was in 2002 from Rissho University's Faculty of Management and Economics from Kumagai City, Saitama Prefecture to Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo, and in 2005, the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Toyo University from Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture to Bunkyo Ward, Tokyo. Starting with moving to, one after another.

 The main areas are Aoyama Gakuin University's 1st and 2nd year courses from Sagamihara City, Kanagawa Prefecture to Shibuya Ward, Tokyo, and the Faculty of Letters of Practical Women's University from Hino City, Tokyo to Shibuya Ward, Tokyo in 2013. Relocated.
In 2016, the Faculty of Business Administration of Tokyo University of Science moved from Kuki City, Saitama Prefecture to Shinjuku Ward, Tokyo.In the future, the Faculty of Comparative Culture of Otsuma Women's University will move from Tama City, Tokyo to Chiyoda Ward, and part of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences of Chuo University will move from Hachioji City, Tokyo to Bunkyo Ward.
All of them had advanced to the suburbs in search of a large campus site, but since many students wanted to live in a university in the city center, they decided to return to the city center.In some cases, the number of examinees increased after returning to the city center, and it seems that they are expecting to secure examinees as the 18-year-old population decreases.

 On the other hand, the number of universities in Tokyo that announced an increase in enrollment capacity in 2016 will reach 25, and the capacity will increase by 4,643.It is expected that the number of private schools will increase due to the stricter enrollment capacity of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and 49.3% of the increase in the number of private universities nationwide will be in Tokyo.

 The composition that private universities in Tokyo are resisting emerges from the government's intention to curb the expansion of new universities in Tokyo and encourage local relocation.
