It has the world's highest fiber-optic broadband penetration, resulting in the world's fastest internet connections with speeds up to 1 Gbps. Seoul still has many ancient architectural attraction such as palaces aging back to the Joseon Dynasty, as well as museums practically overflowing with South Korea’s rich history.

Housing and Meals

On Hanyang University there are multiple dormitories. Some located on campus, and some located right next to one of the campus gates. In and around the buildings there are general facilities like an ATM, a convenience store and a gym. Most rooms are shared with one roommate. However, there are also a limited number of single rooms available. Hanyang University provides on-campus dormitory and off-campus housing for international students. Only small number of scholarship recipients or students from designated countries will be allowed housing in the Dormitory due to lack of space. Thus, most exchange students including Europeans and Latin Americans will be placed in off-campus housing.
