Accommodation in Seoul

Student accommodation in Seoul

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 if you have medical issues which 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 test which is obligatory 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 contact Asia Exchange. If you are staying at the Globeedorm, the medical examination form must be presented in order to check in to the dormitory.

The room is paid 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.
