Int'l Summer Program Arrival


Airport Pick Up Service

Konkuk University will provide airport pick-up service from Incheon International Airport. Our International Student Volunteers (ISV) wearing green t-shirts and holding a Konkuk banner will meet you at the airport and guide you to the place where you can take the airport limousine bus. Once you get off at the Gwangjin-gu Council bus stop near the university, another ISV will take you to the dormitory and help you to check in.

Please note that
  • You must arrive between 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. local time on July 1. If you arrive before 9 a.m., please wait for the ISVs at the pick-up location. If you arrive after 8 p.m. but before the last bus at 10:55 p.m., we may be able to arrange pick-up service on a case-by-case basis. After you submit your flight information form, please email intl_programs@konkuk.ac.kr to find out whether pick-up service is available.
  • Pick-up Location: Please meet the ISVs in front of the Starbucks on the 1st floor of Incheon International Airport. The Starbucks is located between Arrival Gates B and C.
  • Students are responsible for the bus fare of KRW 10,000.
Transportation to Konkuk University
Airport Limousine Bus

If you decide to take a taxi, it will cost you about KRW 70,000 from the Incheon International Airport to Konkuk University Seoul Campus and will take about an hour and a half. Note that a black taxi (deluxe taxi) costs more than a regular one. Fares go up after midnight and passengers are responsible for tolls. It will be a good idea to bring a copy of the KU Seoul Campus map with an address (서울시 광진구 능동로 120 건국대학교) and show it to the driver. Please say, "Konkuk DaeHakGyo GaJuSeYo (건국대학교 가주세요)."

Airport Railroad Express and Subway

You can also reach Konkuk University by subway from the Incheon International Airport. There is a subway line called Airport Railroad Express from Incheon International Airport to Seoul Station and you can come to the Konkuk University station using subway Line 2 (Green) or Line 7 (Olive).

The best way to get to Konkuk University would be:
  • Take Airport Railroad Express at Incheon International Airport Station→ Transfer from Airport Railroad Express to Line 2: Hongik University Station → Get off Line 2: Konkuk University Station (Exit 2 for Line 2 and Exit 4 for Line 7)
  • It will take an hour and a half and Konkuk University is within walking distance from the station.
  • The fare from Incheon International Airport to Konkuk University will be approximately KRW 5,000.
  • There are ticket machines near the entrance of the Airport Railroad Express station. You can either buy a one-way ticket at machines near the entrance of the subway station or rechargeable cards, such as T-money, Cashbee or M-Pass, at a convenient store for multiple uses.
  • While we recommend you get used to Seoul’s subway system
    (http://english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/TRP/TP_ENG_6.jsp) as we will be taking the subway several times for our cultural programs, we strongly recommend taking the airport limousine bus when you come to Konkuk University as it will not be easy to transfer with luggage.
