When you rent an apartment in Japan, you must have a guarantor, who pays your rent on
your behalf if you cannot pay it due to unavoidable circumstances. While Japanese students generally
ask their family members or other people close to them to become a guarantor, many international
students cannot easily do so, and have to use a guaranty company.
In AY2018, Toyo University concluded an MOU with Global Trust Networks Co., Ltd. (GTN)
to allow Toyo University students to use GTN’s guarantor service at a 20% discount. GTN also
assists you in looking for housing in multiple languages, including Japanese, English, Chinese,
Korean, Vietnamese, and Nepali, and offers a wide choice of apartments for international students.
