Kyung Hee University

Last month, I’ve read an article about the 3 most beautiful universities in Seoul. I’ve learned that they’re the Kyung Hee University, Ewha Womans University, and Korea University. Out of curiosity, I planned to visit all of them.

Last month, I was able to Ewha Womans University. This month, I’ve been to Kyung Hee University. It has three campuses: Seoul, Global, and Gwangneung. I opted to visit the Seoul campus because it’s their grandest campus and it’s also near my place.

Kyung Hee

Unlike Ewha, Kyung Hee is a little bit far from the subway station. I had to walk for ten minutes from the subway station to the university. Summer is definitely not a good time to walk under the scorching heat of the sun.

You’ll know you’re there when you see their very Gothic Main Gate.

The long walk became worth it for me when I saw this building. I just used the “panorama mode” of my phone’s camera to take this awesome picture.

This is the University Administration Building for Graduate School.

I went there after I had brunch at the Poop cafe in Insadong. It was afternoon and it was really hot. I was not really in the mood to take some selfies. I think this is my only decent pic in the place. LOL.

They call this building “Grand Peace Hall”

This is the Central Library and Museum.

How to go there:

Take the Seoul Subway Line 1 and get off at Hoegi Station Exit 1. Follow the signs going to the Kyung Hee University. (It’s a 10 minute walk. If you’re too tired to walk, you can take a bus or a taxi)


  1. The Peace Hall is a replica of the medieval Cathedral of St-Michael and St-Gudula in Brussels, Belgium.
