Also, the support provided under “Co-op Leased Apartments Supported by Niigata University” will be terminated. Monthly rent may also change.)

Purchasing insurance such as Comprehensive Renters Insurance for Foreign Students Studying in Japan is recommended to insure against significant payment for damages to the property caused by accidents (fire, explosion, flooding, etc.). Be prepared to look after yourself when living abroad.
It is Japanese custom to require joint guarantor for a private apartment rental contract. Considering that finding such guarantor may be difficult for international students and the burden on the guarantor may be significant, Niigata University may act as a joint-guarantor. The international student must have purchased Comprehensive Renters Insurance for Foreign Students Studying in Japan to use the program.
