Residence Insurance System for International Students
In Japan, it is generally necessary to have a joint guarantor when renting a room of a private apartment. Therefore, the university offers support and becomes a residence guarantor for foreign students who do not have joint guarantors. These students must meet certain requirements and join the “Comprehensive Renters Insurance for Foreign Students Studying in Japan” (Japan Educational Exchanges and Services) (insurance cost must be covered by the student). International students who wish to apply for this system should receive details from the International Affairs Division at their campus.
