If none of the above apply, you need to obtain (activate) your Keio ID. Please refer to this page to activate your ID.

  • New medical residents, as well as nursing and technical staff, will receive a written "Activation Key" and should activate their ID as soon as possible.
  • New students at the Graduate School of Medicine (master's and doctoral programs) or the Graduate School of Health Management (master's and doctoral programs) should refer to the "Registration for keio.jp" distributed separately and activate their ID as soon as possible.
  • Some services on keio.jp may not be available until the next day after the activation. This applies to Box in particular, so please wait for your account to be activated and do not create a free account.
