Tokyo University of Science (東京理科大学,Tōkyō Rika Daigaku), formerly "Science University of Tokyo" or TUS, informally Rikadai (理科大) or simply Ridai (理大) is a private research university located in Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.


Tokyo University of Science was founded in 1881 as The Tokyo Academy of Physics by 21 graduates of the Department of Physics in the Faculty of Science, University of Tokyo (then the Imperial University). In 1883, it was renamed the Tokyo College of Science, and in 1949, it attained university status and became the Tokyo University of Science. [2] The leading character appearing in Japanese novelist Soseki Natsume's novel Botchan graduated from Tokyo University of Science. [12]

As of 2016, it is the only university that produced the Nobel Prize winner as a private university in Japan. At the Nobel Prize in the Natural Sciences field, as of 2016, it is the only university that produced prizes as a private university in Asia. [13]
