University Guarantor System

The office was relocated to the Go Global Center 1st floor, Faculty of Science 1 Bldg. East on March 5, 2018.


Almost all apartment leases in Japan require a guarantor (rentai hoshonin), a person who co-signs the lease to share liability (jointly and severally) with the tenant for any debts to the lessor. Generally, Japanese students ask a family member (parent, sibling, etc.) to serve in this role, but since international students often do not have someone who they can ask to be a guarantor, the University of Tokyo may act as your guarantor if you meet certain eligibility requirements. The application process is outlined below.
