LIVING IN KOREA
Yonsei is a large and diverse research university, so there are many different ways that students can begin to explore and experience Seoul. Like almost all Asian universities, much of the social life and social groups at Yonsei center around club activities. The Yonsei Student Club Association is comprised of about 60 registered clubs, in addition there are an additional 160 affiliated clubs. So there really is a group doing just about everything you can think of!
Almost 40% of Yonsei students participate in club activities, which is really amazing when one considers that many students may work or have other commitments outside of class. There are clubs dedicated to everything from traditional music, drama, travel, astrology, history, mountain climbing, bible study, swimming, yachting and beyond. A partial list can be found here.
A comprehensive university, Yonsei has a full range of academic and co-curricular services and amenities, including several libraries, an indoor swimming pool, fitness rooms (including rooms for yoga, dance, etc.), tennis and squash courts, fitness rooms, and student lounges. In addition, Yonsei hosts a number of annual university-wide athletic competitions, including: the Yonsei – Korea University Friendship Games, the International Friendship Games, and any number of intramural athletic competitions.
Yonsei is located in Seodaemun-gu, in northwestern Seoul. The area includes both residential and historical features and is home to eight different universities and a number of temples.
There is a subway stop near campus, so the university is convenient to the rest of the Seoul metro area. Students typically purchase a subway card for use on the city subway and bus as well as local service to Gyeonggi and Incheon.
Yonsei’s International House accommodates both international and Korean students. Rooms are double occupancy and the primary language in the house is English. Most international students live at the international house during their first semester at Yonsei.
The International House features lounge areas, study areas, a computer lab, and recreation and laundry facilities. Every room at the International House features heating and air conditioning and is equipped with LAN connections for internet use.
