Apartment info new
Tsukuba University (TU) is surrounded with many residential areas with lots of different types of accommodations. These accommodations vary in type of building such as apartments or mansions which may include an elevator. For simplicity Japanese housing agents use the terms L (lounge), D (dinning) and K (kitchen) whenever a search is requested together with a number which refers to the number of rooms within the residence. Therefore a 2 LDK would mean an apartment or a mansion with 2 rooms and a lounge, dining and kitchen. A 1DK refers to a single room with a small dinning and a kitchen. All apartments and mansions come with a toilet and shower.
The rent ranges according to the location or area surrounding TU. As the university is about 2-3 km from the city centre, the closer you are from the city the higher the rent would be.
Parking is available as each accommodation comes with 1 parking per house hold. The charge would range from 2000 yen to 4000 yen per month. Certification from the police is required.
