On December 4, (Wed.) 2019, 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 will be leaving student housing and renting apartments in Sendai for the first time. It was conducted in English and covered how to look for apartments and what to be careful of when signing the lease.

The seminar was held with cooperation from the Tohoku University Co-op housing staff. About 20 international students participated in the seminar and Q&A session.

The majority of the international students were renting apartments for the first time. They listened closely to the presenters and actively asked questions during the Q&A on topics ranging from apartment hunting to rent prices and leases.


The International Exchange Support Office plans to hold similar seminars in the future.

The handouts used in the seminar are available on the TU Support website.
