Student accommodation in Korea

Students at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies can choose to live at the Globeedorm on-campus dorm in Seoul or at one of the two off-campus dormitories, which are also only about 2–3 minute walk from campus. If you are studying at the Global Campus, there is HUFS Dorm available at the campus.

You can indicate your accommodation choice in the Asia Exchange application form. Kindly inform us if you have any special requests, such as roommate requests or medical issues that affect your choice of accommodation.

Students who wish to live in one of the dormitories must also complete a medical examination form. The tuberculosis test is the only obligatory test for all students (skin test or chest X-ray). The test should not be taken more than 3 months before the beginning of the semester. Students can also take the test in Seoul (chest X-ray test costs approximately 15 dollars). Please send the form to Hankuk University directly, but if you have any questions concerning accommodation or the medical examination form, please get in touch with Asia Exchange. If you are staying at the Globeedorm, the medical examination form must be presented to check in to the dormitory.

The room is paid for in full once you arrive in Seoul. You’ll receive the bill from the dorm office, which you should pay in cash at the on-campus bank. The receipt of the payment needs to be taken back to the dorm office.

Students can apply for Hanyang’s on-campus dormitory and the application will be made separately approximately two (2) months before the semester begins. Kindly note housing application works on a “first-come, first-served” basis. The dormitory cannot be guaranteed for those who do not complete housing applications or housing fee payments within the deadline.

Students who want to stay in the dormitories are required to submit Tuberculosis (TB) test results. Though you can take the test before travelling to South Korea, Hanyang will organize a TB test schedule, meaning you can wait until you are in Korea to get tested. You will be informed more on this during orientation.

Access to dormitory facilities can be highly limited upon the policy against the COVID-19 on campus.

Dong-A University does have on-campus accommodation, a dormitory. Many international students stay in these dormitories but may look for their accommodation independently as well. You can try looking before you arrive in Busan, but you can still do it once you are in the country.

Some students stay at hostels/hotels for the first week to get to know the other students/potential roommates during the orientation events. If this is your preferred approach, we recommend booking the accommodation for your first days via Agoda. However, we still recommend looking into your long-term accommodation well in advance before your flight. Remember, other students will also be looking for places to stay!
