Tokyo City University (東京都市大学, Tōkyō toshi daigaku), often called Toshi-dai (都市大) or TCU for short, is an engineering, environmental and information sciences focused private university located in Tokyo, Japan.

The university has four campuses, the Setagaya campus close to the Tama River at Oyamadai, Setagaya, Tokyo being the main campus. The other three campuses are the Yokohama campus, located in Tsuzuki-ku, Yokohama, the Ōzenji campus, located in Asao-ku, Kawasaki and the Todoroki campus, located in Setagaya, Tokyo.

Gotoh Educational Corporation[edit]

The Gotoh Educational Corporation manages the Tokyo City University Group. Dating its origins to 1939 and the establishment of the Toyoko Girls Commercial School, the educational corporation was founded by Keita Gotō a leading industrialist and founder of the Tokyu Group of companies.[citation needed]

Incorporating the former facilities of Musashi Institute of Technology (founded in 1929), the university was reorganized and renamed Tokyo City University in 2009. The wider Tokyo City University Group now comprises eight private educational schools including Tokyo City University and serves over 12,000 students.[3] Other affiliated schools which share the Tokyo City University name include three senior high schools, two junior high schools, one elementary school and one kindergarten.
