Located on the third floor of Daiwa Foundation Japan House, the Centre for Visiting Academics (CVA) offers desk space and facilities for up to 6 visitors. It is primarily aimed at Japanese academics who are temporarily resident in the UK and seeking to carry out research projects from a convenient London base. The CVA offers a sound working environment for the community of academics who may not have existing links with UK universities or who, despite such links, cannot gain access to equivalent university-based accommodation.
The Centre provides each individual with their own desk space and (Windows-based) PC with full access to the Internet and a unique e-mail address if required. It is equipped with 2 direct telephone lines and access to a fax machine and photocopier can be arranged at request. Visiting academics also have full use of Daiwa Foundation Japan House facilities, which include the Library and the Common Room. There is a small monthly charge for desk space, inclusive of local phone, fax and photocopying charges.
The Centre for Visiting Academics is normally open from 9:30am to 5:00pm , Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
