The subsidiary Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus opened in 1990, starting with the Faculty of Policy Management(The first dean was Hiroshi Katou.) and Faculty of Environmental Information(The first dean was Jun Murai, called "The Father of the Internet in Japan" or "Internet Samurai"[1].). This was expanded in 1991 with the establishment of three Research Institutes (Policy Management, Environmental Information, and Language Communication).

In addition to the university, the Shonan Fujisawa Junior and Senior High Schools were added in 1992, and a graduate school for Media and Governance in 1994. The Keio Research Institute was opened in 1996. In 2001, the school added a Faculty of Nursing and Medical Care, followed by a teacher training course in 2002.
