Yonsei International House provides a home away from home up to an international service standard. It provides a 24-hour front desk operation and security system, which ensure living convenience and security. Students and guests can enjoy various facilities and services within a global community.
Yonsei University's international house (Gukje Haksa) operates two properties of SK Global House and Internationl House. They have all the equipment and facilities required in this day of information, technology, and globalization. It can accommodate up to 817 students in single and double rooms. The house is available for students from all nationalities registered at any division related to Yonsei such as undergraduate, graduate, KLI, visiting professors with relation to Yonsei University, etc. The objective is to create a global environment for all residents; there are many languages spoken in the house, although the main language for communication is English.
The House has many facilities for residents to use, including a kitchen with public refrigerators, a music room, a fitness center, a coin-operated laundry, a computer room, a dry cleaning shop, a lounge area, a study room, a seminar room, a video room, and different services which can be used by residents and non-residents, like a food court, a convenient store, a flower shop, a school supply store, a nail shop, and a fast food restaurant.
Alternatives to the International house include living with relatives in Seoul or in the boarding houses catering to Yonsei students (at prices that are somewhat higher than the International house). Yonsei University encourages students to live with a Korean family, if possible, for their second semester of residence. Students are responsible for arranging their own accommodations.
