Company Dormitories

Private corporations have set aside rooms in their employee dormitories for housing international students. The Corporate Friendship Network for International Students enables international students to stay in company dormitories, thereby providing them with stable housing and financial assistance while at the same time furthering mutual understanding through daily interaction between employees and students.

There is are not a fixed number of company dormitory rooms offered to YNU. Rather, YNU receives requests to recommend applicants as rooms become available. Vacancies will be posted on the bulletin board and Student Support Division website.

Only students studying without scholarships are eligible to apply. Also, there are certain restrictions set by the companies.

Private Apartments

The University CO-OP (located in the University Hall) offers introductions and assistance regarding private apartments for free. Assistance is also offered through real estate companies. To move into a private apartment, you will need to pay a security deposit, key money, brokerage fee, and the first month’s rent. Therefore, it is necessary to have enough money to cover four to six times the monthly rent when signing the lease.

Generally, you need a joint guarantor to rent a private apartment in Japan. If you do not have a guarantor, please use the services of private rent guarantee companies. (Please note YNU does not become the guarantor of students.)

Bringing your Family

Students must take into consideration the various difficulties and great expense that will be involved in finding a family accommodation in Japan. Therefore, if you who want to accompany your families, you are strongly advised to come alone first and let them come after you have found a suitable accommodation.
