Out-of-the-box Campus | Ewha Womans University in Korea

The design of Ewha Campus Complex (ECC) is nothing short of stunning!

The state-of-the-art ECC (dug up in the middle of the campus) has attracted tourists in droves, especially Chinese tourists who arrive in busloads. These tourists got out-of-hand--disturbing classes and taking photos of the students without their consent that university management decided to limit access to certain areas in the campus. 
Meanwhile, inside this underground complex (the largest underground campus in Korea) one can find Starbucks, movie theaters, high-end fitness gym for faculty and students, banks, bookstore, lecture rooms and performance halls. 

The buildings that surround the very modern ECC are homes to the different colleges of Ewha. Ewha is ranked 1st in South Korea in the following fields: Education, Engineering, English Language & Literature, Environmental Engineering, History, Law, Mathematics, Nutritional Science & Food Management, Physics and Sociology.

Notable alumni of Ewha include 3 of Korea's First Ladies. It has also produced the most number of Korean female executives in the country's top 100 corporations.

Just outside Ewha campus is one of the popular shopping districts in Seoul. 

How to get there:
Five  minutes walk from exits #2 & 3 of Ewha Womans University Station (Subway Line 2)
