Student Saloon "Echo"
The School of Economics and the Graduate School of Economics offer a saloon and IT room for the convenience of the students. The following describes what they are and how to use them.
Student Saloon "Echo"
  The room is located on the first floor of the building of the Faculty of Economics.
  40 seats and a vending machine are available. You can have pleasant chat with your friends.
  Students can bring their own PCs. Wireless LAN is available in the saloon. If you don't have a PC, you may use the PCs in the adjacent IT room.
How to use IT Room
  Six PCs are available in the IT room. To use this room, please go to the Student Affairs Section No. 4 to fill in an application form (name and ID number requested). You will receive two keys - one for the room and one for a PC. You can use the room key to unlock the door of the IT room and then activate a PC by inserting the PC key.
In addition, a DVD player is available for watching recorded lectures for students at QBS (Kyushu University Business School). The viewing of private DVDs is not allowed.
Computer Room (Room No. 409 on the 4th floor)

People who are admitted by the Computer Committee, such as lectures and students, are allowed to use PCs in this room upon admission. Application forms can be downloaded from here.
Qualification and Time for Use
  Any student of the School of Economics and the Graduate School of Economics is allowed to use the facilities at any time excluding early morning, midnight, and holidays. The Saloon opens from 8:00 to 22:00 from Monday to Friday. On Saturday, it opens from 8:00 to 18:00 only during the semester. (The door of the Saloon is locked automatically at designated hours). The key for the IT room is available only during the office hours of Student Affairs Section No. 4. Since the Saloon is available "at any time for any student of the School of Economics and the Graduate School of Economics", reservation of the saloon for a specific class or seminar is not allowed.
Nickname of the Saloon
We asked our students to come up with nicknames for our Saloon and received more than sixty recommendations. After an impartial investigation, the nickname was determined as "Echo". This name implicates "Economy" and "Echo" of the students' voices. We hope that this place will be a space where students can feel relaxed and their voices echo through the room.
