Using Public Transportation

Seoul city has a very organized public transportation system and you may come and visit Seoul National University easily by using the bus and subway.

Subway

When using the subway to visit Seoul National University, make sure to take Subway Line No. 2(Green Line) and stop either at the Seoul National University Entrance Station, the Naksungdae Station, or the Shillim Station.

Subway Line No. 2 (Green Line), Seoul National University Entrance Station (Exit No. 3)

Even though Seoul National University is near the entrance station, it is not within the walking distance. You will need to take a bus or a taxi to get the university. Be sure not to confuse the Seoul National University Entrance Station with the Seoul National University of Education/Court or Prosecutor’s Office Station.

After exiting exit no.3, walk towards the Gwanak-gu Office. There you will find the school shuttle bus and also a regular bus that comes to SNU. The campus shuttles are free of charge. The operation and interval of the buses differ during vacation time and semesters, but is usually in the range of every 5 to 20 minutes. Buses number 5511 and 5513 circulate the campus counter-clockwise, from the university’s main entrance to the Administration Building.
