Family Member Access Card


OIST operates a Family Member to allow access to non-wet lab/experimental spaces in the laboratory buildings, in addition to designated public areas of OIST, for the requested purpose, such as to attend language class and other activities for family members. Adult family members are to register for and receive ID cards that will allow them access to limited areas of the laboratory buildings.

Access to laboratory buildings is a privilege. Adult family members applying for access cards are expected to follow all rules and regulations regarding their conduct in the laboratory buildings. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of access.

If building use should change OIST reserves the right to terminate the Adult Family Member Access Program.
