If your housing fee is covered by a scholarship from Korea University, by an exchange program or by the governement (either your country's or Korea's), you will need to upload a ''Housing Fee Supporting Document'' which proves that your dormitory fees will be covered by another entity other than yourself. It could either be a captured image or scan of a letter of acceptance from the program or a letter when the institution that granted you the scholarship states that they will support your housing fees. Please, upload these aforecited documents as soon as you get accepted to the dormitories.
Enter reslife.korea.ac.kr -> click on the ''Student Residence'' button -> click on ''My Housing Account'' -> click on the link in red that says ''If you are sure you do not have a Housing Account, click here to create one'' -> fill in all the information required. And then you'll be able to place your application.
Extensions are granted under certain situations. They also depend on whether rooms are needed for new tenants. Nevertheless, it is advisable to sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the reason for your request.
Individual routers are assigned per room, which means each suite has its own personal WIFI. In case your router stops working altogether, or the WIFI's signal is weak you can place a request online at dorm.korea.ac.kr or if you can't figure out how you can always ask the RA on duty on the first floor.
In case a light goes out or something else in your room has broken and needs repair you can report it to the security guard on the first floor. He will ask the technician to go repair whatever needs mending.
Anam Global House, CJ International House and Anam Hall 2 dormitories do not operate with curfews. As long as the residents have their electronic key cards they can come and go at any time. There are, however, 'quiet hours' from 12am to 6am where students are expected to 'be quiet'.
No, roommates are assigned by and only by the dormitory management team and therefore a student cannot choose their roommates. However, in case a student does not get along with their roommates, they can appeal to the dormitory manager and place a request to chage their rooms. It is always advised, however, to try to talk things out first and only consider placing a request for room change if things do not end up working out.
Yes, printing machines are available for use to students on the first floor of Anam Global House and CJ International House. CJ International House, however, counts with two photocopy machines that are available to residents of Anam Global House and Anam Hall 2 as well.
Printers are programmed to work with I-print, that is, each resident that wants to use the printers will have to make an I-print account. Accounts can be charged with money via phone bills or by making the trip to the Main Library and depositing the money yourself. Each printout costs 50won (which is about a nickle :))
To create an i-print account follow these steps:
*Click on the i-Print icon. It'll redirect you to their main page.
*Create an account in the website.
*Once you've logged in using your new ID, you'll be redirected to their home screen where you can choose how much money you want to charge your account with.
Check-outs are carried out on the date assigned by the dormitory management team, which is usually the last day of a school semester. Each student will have to get a room inspection from one of the RAs, preferably the day before one's check-out date.
Non-residents are prohibited from going in further than the lobby. Each visitor will have to sign a visitors form stating the purpose of the visit and whom they are visiting.

CJ International House has twon small kitchens per floor, equipped with refrigerators, microwave ovens, and toasters to be used by the residents. Fridge storage, though, is touchy subject. Each student has the right to store food in the fridges, that's why the dormitory management has reduced to number of containers per students to one. Containers should be of 5 litters and should have the student's name and room number written on it. Anam Global House, however, has one nig kitchen on the first floor.
The dormitory management team does not provide newly enrolled students with a tutor or mentor. There are, however, other school entities such as KUBA and KUISA that operate on a buddy program. We would recommend visiting the Office of International Affair's website oia.korea.ac.kr

Every newly enrolled foreign student needs to visit the Immigration Office to get their ARC, so their stay in the country could be deemed legal. You'll need a couple of documents issued by the dormitory management team: a Proof of Residency and your payment receipt. Both could be sent to you via email once you've settled up any outstanding fees. You can ask either the RA on duty or the go tho the manager's office.
Payment via wire transfer is acceptable. Students can pay in cash when they check in, but it's more advisable that they pay via bank transfer. We're unable to provide an exact amount in US dollars because the currency exchange rate is constantly changing.
Please, note that the sender is reponsible for any transfer charges, including intermediary and beneficiary bank fees. So please, try to transfer a sufficient amount of money that can cover all transfer expenses. If the amount received by the dormitory os less than the amount billed, you'll have to make an additional payment upon arrival at Korea University.
Heaters usually stop working aound the end of April or beginning of May, then there is a 'resting period' of about 3 weeks for the dormitory technicians to come and check the machines and see if they require any fixing or change of parts. Aircons usually start working around the third week of May.

Residents of Anam Global House and Anam Hall 2 can come to CJ and enjoy piano playing!

TB tests must be taken a month before check in the dorms, at most. You can take your TB test at any Health Center nearby. The closest one to Korea University is 성북구 보건소 (Seongbuk Community Health Center). To get there you will have to take the subway line 6 at Anam Station or Korea University Station, the two subway stations closest to campus, and get off at Wolgok Station (월곡) exit 2, and then walk straight for about 5 minutes. You will see the entrance of the health center on your right.

Anam Global House does not receive check-ins after 12:00am. If you arrive after midnight and insist on checking in, you will have to go through check-in procedures at CJ International House. However, since CJ International House staff does not keep keys to Anam Global House, you can only get a master key, which you you can use to enter the building and your room, but will have to return the next day and collect yours. If you lose the master key, you will have to pay a fee of 100,000won.
If you want to check in earlier than the official date, you will have to pay an additional housing fee, which is 25,000won per day, and inform the management team in advance when you wish to move in.
Upon arrival and check-in, you will be asked by the RAs on duty if you wish to rent bedding covers, blankets and pillows. If so, you will need to pay a 20,000won rental fee. At the end of the semester, if you're moving out, you will need to return your rented beddings.

No, beds and desks are assigned to students by the dormitory management team. For double rooms in CJ International House, for example, 602B1, you will have to use the bed on the right side of the room, even if you end up not getting a rommate, you're expected to refrain from using both sides and use just yours. As for Anam Global House the same logic applies, except for triple rooms where, G228-1 is the single bed, G228-2 is the bottom half of a bunk bed, and G228-3 is the top half of a bunk bed.

Please, visit our website reslife.korea.ac.kr for more information regarding this matter.
