On December 15 (Thu.), a seminar titled "Renting Apartments for Beginners," was held at the International Exchange Building on Kawauchi Kita Campus.
The seminar was aimed at international students who are about to leave their dormitories and rent apartments in Sendai for the first time. It was conducted in English and covered methods for looking for apartments and things to be careful of when signing the rental agreement.
The seminar was held with cooperation from the Tohoku University Co-op housing staff. About 30 international students participated in the seminar and Q&A session.
Many of the international students had questions and anxieties about renting apartments, so they seemed happy to have their concerns addressed in English.
The International Support Office plans to hold similar seminars in the future.
Those who missed the seminar can find the handouts on the TU Support website.
