Housing Information

Busan Housing Information

ISA Housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Korean lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of South Korea. All housing is on campus, conveniently located near public transit routes accessible to all parts of the city. The experience of living in another culture will be both educational and rewarding so long as you stay open-minded and reasonable at all times.

Remember: There are differences in culture and lifestyle between life in South Korea and the U.S. The key to a positive experience is flexibility. With this in mind, you can have an amazing stay in Busan!

Students participating in semester programs at PNU will have the option of staying in dorms on campus with other international and visiting students.
