Aichi University (愛知大学, Aichi Daigaku) is a private university in Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Its campuses are located in Nakamura-ku, Nagoya, Toyohashi and Higashi-ku, Nagoya.



The university's predecessor was founded by Konoe Atsumaro as an overseas Japanese institution of higher education in the Hong Qiao (虹桥) District of Shanghai in 1901, and was chartered as Toa Dobunshoin University [3] (東亜同文書院大学, Tōa dōbunshoin daigaku) in 1939. [4] The school produced numerous leaders who took part in China's modernisation process in the early 20th century, with financial and intellectual support from Japan.

At the end of World War II, the university faced closure. Its spiritual successor, Aichi University, was established by staff and students who had previously been based at the university and other overseas Japanese institutions in Toyohashi, Japan in 1946. [4]
