However, please note that it is very difficult for KUBS exchange students to get a room in one of the on-campus dormitories due to its assignment priority and limited spaces. Therefore, it is highly recommended for students to find and prepare to stay in off-campus accommodation in case on-campus housing is not provided (which is very likely).
Off-campus Accommodation
There are numerous private student accommodations called Goshitel near the campus, reachable by 5-10 minutes’ walk. These accommodations vary widely in terms of room size and rate. Prices range from approximately KRW 450,000 to KRW 700,000 per month, and the average price is about KRW 550,000. For more off-campus housing options, please refer to http://goshipages.com.
 
Moreover, general information on housings in Seoul is also available at the Seoul Global Center website, http://global.seoul.go.kr > Living > Housing.
 
Homestay Korea (http://homestaykorea.com) can arrange students with families willing to host a homestay student, and reservations are available in English.
3. Insurance
 
Insurance
Private Health/Travel Insurance
(for non-Korean passport holders only)
All KUBS incoming exchange students except for those with Korean citizenship MUST have worldwide insurance coverage, and the benefits should provide for all injuries and illnesses that may occur during the whole duration of their stay in Korea.
 
4. Student Visa (D-2)
 
Visa
For foreigners of non-Korean descent
KUBS exchange students of non-Korean descent MUST have the D-2 student visa to study at KUBS. They can apply for the visa at the nearest Korean Embassy or a Korean consulate in their home country by submitting the three documents in the admission packet: Certificate of Admission, Letter of Admission, and Business License of Korea University (for those of Chinese nationality, students MUST apply in the country where their home institution is located).
 
Those who are going to travel and apply for the student visa in other countries than their home country MUST make sure to check if they can process the visa application there.

Important notice: When the student comes to Korea with a single-entry visa and the student leaves Korea before making an Alien Registration Card (ARC), their visa will be canceled. Please remember this before making travel plans after arriving Korea.
For foreigners of Korean descent /
individual holding Korean and other (dual) citizenship
In terms of visa issues, the requirements may vary by case for foreigners of Korean descent and/or individuals holding Korean and other (dual) citizenship; thus, they MUST check with the Korean Embassy or a Korean consulate in their place of residence before applying for our exchange program.
For Korean passport holders /
F-4 visa holders
Students holding a Korean passport or F-4 visa do not have to apply for any other specific visa to study at KUBS.
