Most of the text on this page was cut-and-pasted straight from Kinki's site. I removed lots of the marketese, broken English, and fluffy stuff.Naniwako 17:21, 16 May 2007 (UTC)


Where can I buy a Kinki University t-shirt? —Brim 23:49, July 15, 2005 (UTC)

At the university, I imagine. ···日本穣? · Talk to Nihonjoe 05:05, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

English name[edit]

When the English name was changed formally? The university said, they will think about changing English name. But, As long as I know, the university has not changed the English name yet. Please add the sources of the information. I can not find the news, and the university's site has not changed the English name. If there is no reply within one week, I will revert this edition.--HATA A. K. (talk) 11:37, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

This doesn't sound right to me. I work at Kinki University and I have never heard anyone talking about this. I never got a memo in my mailbox saying the name has changed. There is not a press release on their website saying that the name has been changed. The sign on the main gate of the campus still says "Kinki University" and both the English and Japanese websites still use the words "Kinki University." Finally, the Japanese wikipedia site lists the English name as Kinki University. MARHALT comment added by Marhalt (talkcontribs) 03:37, 20 June 2008 (UTC)
Removed the description related to the unsourced name change. There is no evidence such as public announcements showing that happened. -- Mantokun (talk) 04:35, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
See this. I'm wary of including it right now because of WP:CRYSTAL (they may change their mind) but I guess that it would be ok to do so since that news story was actually linked from the English-language homepage of the university's official website on 22 May 2014. - Sitush (talk) 18:01, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
[1] Item no.4 in this article makes it perfectly clear that the change to "Kindai University" isn't happening until May 2016. I edited the page to reflect this. tripbeetle (talk) 11:56, 5 August 2014 (UTC)
