The Institute has reserved 20 double-occupancy rooms at a serviced residence in a safe neighborhood at a rate of $900 per person for the duration of the academic program from June 17 – July 3. Each room includes two single beds, free internet, a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, and washer/dryer. The hotel is a 20-minute bus ride to campus, and a five to seven minute walk to four different subway lines. The hotel rate also includes weekly maid service. For those who prefer other housing options, the Institute can provide information upon request.
The Institute will also provide information to students on how and where to obtain housing close to the SKKU campus. Please note: we strongly urge students to locate housing before arriving in Seoul. Housing assignment information will be sent to admitted applicants who request housing by mid-April, 2016.
Overall Cost Of Living Estimate
Although the total cost of participating in the academic portion of the program will vary given the world-wide range of participants, we would estimate that the additional costs of food, living expenses and travel will average $40 per day or $2,040 for the entire program.
In addition to tuition (US $3,600) and fees, students are responsible for the cost of their own transportation to and from Seoul, housing, meals, and other related expenses in Seoul.
Access To Facilities For Persons With Disabilities
Most cities in Asia, including Seoul, are not as handicapped-accessible as U.S. cities. On campus, access for persons with disabilities to classrooms, offices, and other facilities is limited. Prospective applicants are invited to contact Executive Director Leighanne Yuh, for detailed information on possible accommodations.
