University on-campus dorm
  • All participants will be placed in a double occupancy room of our on-campus dormitory.
  • Each room is furnished with 2 single beds, bedding, desks, chairs, wardrobes, a phone, WiFi, A/C, and a private bathroom.
  • A variety of facilities are also available for students’ convenience such as a laundry room, restaurant, gym, convenience store, etc.

  • However, a Korean style sheet/mat for use on the bed as well as a blanket and pillow are provided to each student.
  • When double rooms are full, you may be assigned to a 4-person room.
  • Please note that students can stay in the dorm only for the length of the program period.
TB test results
  • For the safety of all residents in the dorm, it is required that participants do a tuberculosis test (chest x-ray, skin test or blood test) and submit the results upon arrival.
  • The test should be taken within the 2 months prior to the dorm move-in date.
  • A record of vaccination for tuberculosis is NOT acceptable.
