Off-campus housing

Although student dormitories are convenient and economical, they are not sufficient for everybody. International students who wish to live alone or who are unable to be admitted to the dormitory should find accommodation


 

Neighboring areas

SNU is surrounded by three residential areas: Seoul National University Station, Shillim-dong (also called Nokdu Street) and Nakseongdae. Housing in studios, single-rooms, and shared flats is offered in all three areas and can be found through OIA, local real estate agents, or online. Below is the comparison of the pros and cons of each area.
