HOW TO GET TO KONKUK UNIVERSITY
Konkuk University's main campus is located in the south-eastern part of Seoul near the Han River. The university is easily accessible from downtown Seoul.
From Incheon International Airport
1. Airport Limousine
The best way to reach Konkuk University from Incheon International Airport is by airport limousine bus. Information regarding buses and limousines can be found at the passenger terminal. Look for Bus #6013. The first bus departs at 06:20 a.m. and the last bus at 22:40 p.m. You can buy a ticket at a booth right outside the airport arrival gate. It will cost you ₩10,000; you must pay in cash. The bus is available every 40 minutes.
The ride is about 90 minutes long, depending on the traffic. Get off at the bus stop named "Konkuk University (Konkuk Dae Hak Gyo in Korean)." (See photo below.) You can easily see the campus from there.
If you decide to take a regular taxi, it will cost you about ₩70,000 from the airport. Avoid a black taxi (deluxe taxi) as it costs more than a regular one. It may be a good idea to bring a copy of the Konkuk University Seoul campus map, show it to the driver and say, "Konkuk Dae Hak Gyo Ga-Ju She-Yo" in Korean. You are advised to pay close attention to the fare meter, though.
You can also reach Konkuk University by subway from the airport. There is a new subway line from Incheon International Airport to Seoul Station.
