The Seoul Metro Guide
While Seoul National University is nearby the SNU Entrance station, it is not within walking distance, and you will need to take a bus or a taxi to get to the university. Be sure not to confuse the Seoul National University Entrance Station with the Seoul National University of Education/Court or Prosecutor’s Office Station.
From exit #3, walk towards the Gwanak-gu Office. There you will find the campus shuttle bus and other buses that will take you to SNU. Campus shuttles are free of charge. Though intervals vary during the semesters, the shuttle buses generally run every 5 to 20 minutes. You can also take the public 5511 and 5513 buses that circulate the campus counter-clockwise, from the university’s main entrance to the Administration Building.
You will need to use another mode of transportation to get to campus from Nakseongdae Station. From exit #4, walk straight and make a left turn at the gas station. There will be a bus stop in front of the bakery. Take the small green town bus number 02 (관악 Gwanak 02 bus).
You will need to use additional mode of transportation to get to campus from Shillim Station. From exit #3, take bus number 5516, which circulates counter-clockwise from the main entrance towards the Administration Building, and passing by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (Bldg. #200) and College of Engineering (Bldg. #301).

If you have taken a bus that stops in front of the main gate, you may either get off at the gate and transfer to a bus that circulates the campus, or take the on-campus shuttle, which stops at the Administration Building, College of Engineering (Bldg. #301), Gwanak-sa (Dormitory), etc.
