On 5 July 2023, the International Education and Student Mobility Division, in collaboration with the International Academic Research and Resource Center for Language Education (iARRC) of the Institute for Liberal and Arts and Science (ILAS), held this semester's Kyoteiko Hiroba, or 'Partner Universities Square', as a Student Lounge 'KI-ZU-NA' (KIZUNA) monthly event.

Kyoteiko Hiroba offers an opportunity for students from and bound for the University's partner institutions to get to know one another, and also for those interested in studying abroad to learn about available opportunities. It is hoped that international students may develop deeper connections with Kyoto University and with Japan.

In the 5 July event, held at the ILAS Building on the Yoshida-South Campus, exchange students from McGill University, the University of Bonn, the Catholic University of Leuven, and the Autonomous University of Madrid delivered presentations in English introducing their home institutions and countries. These were followed by an informal discussion, where participants actively interacted with each other.

The event attracted more than 50 students, many of whom later expressed satisfaction with the program, describing their experience as fun, informative, and enriching.
