The Summer@UIC program is located at the Yonsei International Campus (YIC) in Songdo, Incheon; only thirty minutes from the Incheon International Airport. Students reside at the International Campus Residence Hall, which is newly completed and equipped with many high-tech facilities.
Dormitories are important centers of activity where students can form lasting friendships and have an opportunity to experience college life during their time at the Yonsei International Campus. Residential Advisors (RA) will live in the Residence Hall alongside the SUIC students. RAs are primarily drawn from Underwood International College students.
Dormitory rooms are designed for double and triple occupancy, with the majority being triples. SUIC students may select accommodation in a two or three person room when applying, and each RA will oversee around nine to twelve students.
Both full-board (Three meals a day) and breakfast-only meal plans are available. However, it is recommended that students choose the full-board option since the selection of food and restaurants are limited around YIC. While the cafeteria provides a variety of Korean and Asian cuisines with western inspiration, students can also grab a quick snack from the convenient store in the dormitory basement.
Students may also choose not to reside in the residence hall. In this case, the dormitory fee will be waived.

Each dormitory room is equipped with one bathroom, one shower stall with a bed, desk, chair, bookshelf, closet, and drawer for each student. Each room also has an air conditioner, a custom control temperature management system, and window blinds. Students need to bring their own bed sheet, blanket, and pillows, because the university only provides the mattress. However, students are able to rent sheets and a pillow from the administration office with a 30,000won deposit (refundable).
Students will use special card keys to enter the facility and activate the electricity in their rooms. When keys are inserted in the wall-slots, the doorbell lights up to indicate that the room is occupied. Students who have lost their ID cards are locked out of their rooms. In order to reenter the room, students must contact their RA or go downstairs to the security guard for help. A small penalty will be issued for the lost card keys from the third lockout onward. Remember to carry your card key with you at all times.
Students are expected to handle all residence hall property with care and will be held responsible for any damages.
In every floor, there are two community rooms where students can chat, study, and enjoy their free time by engaging in many activities. Though not all the community rooms are furnished equally, they all have a refrigerator, two air conditioners, benches, tables, chairs, a television, remote control, and a trash can. Some community rooms even have microwave ovens, water dispensers, and sofas for students to use.
Students can use the community room facilities for various purposes. For example, students can store food in the community room refrigerator. However, students are encouraged to label their food with sticky notes that have the student’s name, affiliated department, and room number to prevent possible confusion. In addition, students can play and watch movies, television shows, and sport events on TV. Students can also bring their personal video games and play it during their free time.
