Why Don't You Check Your New Homes?

From this new semester, students are able to live in Dormitory 3 at Hongik University. But unlike other dormitories, Dormitory 3 is outside of the campus, and there are no people who have lived there. Where is it? How much will it cost? Instead of jthe poor description on the homepage, the Hongik Tidings will show you information about our new residence space. Lets begin, with the comparison of existing dormitories.

From this semester, students can apply for a dormitory room with roommates they want. This policy was made because so many people felt uncomfortable living with people they don't know well. This writer is planning to share a room with a person I lived with last year.

Dormitory 3 is quite far from the University. It takes nearly 30 minutes on foot.

You can also take a bus to reduce your travel time.

BUS

(Within 15 minutes) 7013A From Seogang Elementary School to Hongik Girl's Middle & High School

(Within 10 minutes) Mapo 08 From Hongik University to Seongseo Elementary School

I went to see Dormitory 3 on February 8th when many workers were busy finishing the construction. Dormitory 3 is a small and it accommodates only about two hundred people. The dorm is divided into two parts: A and B Buildings.

Building A is for men. It is five-story building, placed at the front, which is the road side. Because of structural reasons, there are special rooms only in Building A, such as a single room.

Building B is for women. It is four-story building, placed at the back side. All the rooms in Building B have the same floorplan.

Each room looked exactly the same as with Dormitory 2. Each facility looked alike to those of Dormitory 2, including furniture, bathroom, and heater controller Dormitory 1 rooms are centrally heated. And there is a resting lounge each floor.

Dormitory fee is about 1.2 million won per semester. It means that the cost of Dormitory 2 is the same as the combined cost of Dormitory 3 and the cost of riding the bus.

The cafeteria is not ready for food service and maybe it would be impossible to find a food company which is willing to work here, the chief of the dormitory administration said, who allowed me to accompany him. He said he is thinking of a new idea for better utilizing this space, such as a share kitchen.

지하 1 laundary room, convenience store, control room(방재실)

1 administration office(행정실), reading room, labtop room

2 5 dormitory room

According to the dormitory system in Hongik University, students GPA scores of the last semester are used for deciding if students can live in each dormitory. So we can judge the popularity of each dormitory by students cut-off scores. For this semester, Dormitory 2 was most popular, in spite of the highest fee. When you decide to move in to the dorm, choose the right one that best fits your circumstance.
