If you (an international student) intends to occupy a private apartment, but cannot find a cosignatory, TUS will become your guarantor in the name of the Student Cervices Center. But first, please subscribe to the International Students Housing General Compensation System offered by Japan Educational Exchanges and Services (JEES). The subscription fee is 4,000 yen for 1 year or 8,000 yen for 2 years. Since you will receive assistance from the school, the actual amount you will have to pay out of your pocket will be 2,000 yen for 1 year and 4,000 yen for 2 years. If you cannot find a guarantor or cosignatory, please consult with the Student Services Section (Kagurazaka, Katsushika, Noda).
This insurance protects the insured students against accident liability and releases the guarantors from their financial burden.
