Museum
The TKU museum first opened its doors to the public to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the university charter and has now been operating for more than 30 years. The museum’s facilities are among the newest on the Itabashi campus. The museum owes its reputation to a significant number of historically important documents and books bound in Japanese style, which have been carefully collected since the school’s foundation.
Moreover, experts at the museum have created many models that faithfully represent costumes and household utensils. The museum also displays other traditional items, such as Guatemalan costumes, native Taiwanese costumes, and Indonesian dolls called wayang.
Out of the 4,000 sewing models, 2,351, at last count, have been designated as significant tangible folk cultural assets of the country.
The museum usually exhibits materials that describe people’s lives, with an emphasis on food, clothing, and juvenile education. Special exhibitions are also open to the public twice a year.
 
The Dormitory
The dormitory houses 188 students. All the rooms are Western style, with two or four beds. 
 
The Health Center
The Health Center has a chief doctor, a subchief doctor, nurses, clinical psychologists, advisors, and counselors, as well as part-time medical specialists, such as gynecologists and psychiatrists. The center has school-doctor contracts with the department of internal medicine and gynecology of several hospitals. It offers solutions and advice to each student and staff member of Tokyo Kasei University concerning social, psychological, and health problems of all kinds. It also offers advice on preventive medicine and physical exercise.
 
The Lifelong Study Center
The Lifelong Study Center was created in 1997 to meet the demands of office workers and local people who want to continue studying throughout their lives. It offers more than 80 courses over a wide range of fields, such as language learning, health care, sports, and living. Courses are also offered in general and continuing  education and some qualification-obtaining fields. Around 2,000 people, young and old, have studied here.
 
Human Life Plaza
The main purpose of Human Life Plaza is to rediscover and reconstruct university achievements through an interdisciplinary approach. This should be helpful in coping with the various problems of this century. We are concerned with not only students and alumni but also our surrounding communities.  Through our relationship with and contribution to these groups, we would like to develop ideal ties between the university and society. Hulip (as we call Human Life Plaza) offers its life-based art and information in support of local life by offering the place and opportunity for intellectual communication among students, alumni, and local people. It also aims to contribute to the university through its activities and studies.
 
In keeping with the increasingly acute need for international education, the International Studies Center (ISC) opened in April 1993 to manage the international activities of Tokyo Kasei University, Junior College, and High School.
Since then, the ISC has developed a global network of working relationship with some ten universities and colleges in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Italy, Australia, and New Zealand for the sake of language and cultural exchanges.
Besides this, increasing attention is being focused on the need to promote the welfare of students from abroad who are studying at TKU. The ISC, together with the Student Support Center, offers assistance and advice to these students with the goal of making their lives at Tokyo Kasei University pleasant and rewarding.
