Nearby classrooms and easy access to shops, restaurants and public transportation create an ideal environment for both the academic and cultural experience. There are two lounges on each floor with a computer room, laundry room, and a lecture hall. Rooms are single or double occupancy and are reserved directly with Yonsei University on a first-come, first-served basis upon acceptance.
