Are you planning on studying abroad in Korea? If you're looking for a place to stay, look no further! All the information you need for housing is here. Living in Seoul can be quite expensive, especially since housing gets so expensive. For foreigners, it can be even more difficult because there aren't many real estate agencies that provide English or foreign language services. Don't worry, because now international students can find housing in Korea through Creatrip!

You can get a private living space while also having the option to make friends with your neighbors in this co-living space provided by Aird, which is a trusted, registered real estate agency. Additionally, the agency provides foreign language services, so you can get help at any time. 

The Suyu area is filled with university students and working adults and is a 30-40 minute distance from the University of Seoul and Korea University.

Shall we take a look at this housing option in Seoul together?

Why We Recommend It

It can be difficult to find housing in Korea as a foreigner, but here, you won't be discriminated against for being a foreigner. We've proceeded in a partnership with a very reliable real estate agency (Aird) that provides rooms for foreign students on the same terms as Koreans. 

Aird provides language services for students in 4 languages (Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and English). After completing the housing contract, you may contact the online customer center for any questions about moving in. 

There are many basic amenities provided, including an air conditioner, washing machine, refrigerator, induction stove, bed, wifi, etc., which can help you save money. 

These rooms are within 5 minutes of Suyu station and are offered at a lower price than other housing options in the same area. The average security deposit for monthly rental housing is 10,000,000 KRW or more, but E-1 Suyu is provided at 2,000,000 KRW. 

University of Seoul, Korea University, and Kyunghee University, which all have a Korean language program, are all within a 30-40 minute distance. Since Suyu is in a university area, there are lots of stores that are on the affordable side. 

The building also provides various shared spaces for everyone to use, such as a working lounge, a free gym, a rooftop, and a laundry room, which is super convenient! You don't have to go far to run errands or get work done! 

Things To Keep In Mind

Creatrip only provides initial third-party housing services. The contract and move-in process are managed and handled by the real estate agency Aird. 

The total deposit includes the Creatrip processing fee of 8%. When the deposit is refunded, all extra expenses, such as cleaning or maintenance fees, will be deducted from the original deposit amount of 2,000,000 KRW, excluding the processing fee (8%).

This housing service is for foreign students that live in or will live in Korea. When you make a reservation, please be sure to submit an official 'letter of admission' or 'certificate of acceptance' that is in your legal name.

The minimum period of residence is 30 days. Please enter the required information accurately when making a reservation.

The maintenance fee is paid monthly and is divided into categories: a joint maintenance fee and a room maintenance fee. After the first month, all fees will be handled directly with the real estate agency (Aird). 

Joint Maintenance Fee: Electricity, water, gas, etc. bills for the shared spaces are split equally amongst all residents in the building. 

Room Maintenance Fee: Electricity, water, gas, air conditioning, etc. bills are charged based on the amount used by the resident. 

The purpose of the security deposit is to confirm the applicant's intent to move in and will be refunded when the applicant moves out. The monthly maintenance fees will be paid by deducting the amount from the initial security deposit, then having the remaining amount refunded. If there are any damages to the facilities or rooms, there may be additional deductions.

After you complete a reservation, we will check which rooms are available with the real estate agency (Aird) first. Rooms that are in high demand may become unavailable quickly. 

The room will be chosen from the ones available and be randomly assigned to applicants; you will not be able to choose a specific room or floor.

Once you receive notification that a room has been secured, you will have 1 day to pay the security deposit and rent for the first month to confirm your housing application.

After payment is complete, you will need to fill out the real estate housing contract online with the real estate agency (Aird). The contract is available in both Korean and English, and you will complete the contract signing with the real estate agency.

Residents should maintain the room well; if damage to the room occurs due to negligence by the resident, it will be restored to its original state at the expense of the resident.

You may raise a pet, but in case of interior damage, the resident will be responsible for any repair fees. 

The room is safely secured by a digital door lock. Residents will also receive a key card on the day of move-in that can be used to access the building entrance and elevator. 

You may move in on any day including weekends, and there are no restrictions on time when moving in (self-check-in).
