Come to Songdo

We encourage you to visit campus during any season. We will show you around campus and answer your questions. You will love Incheon and Korea. To schedule a campus tour and for help arranging your visit, please contact the Office of International Affairs.

Getting Here

Airport

The Incheon National airport is ranked one of the top airports in the world and is just 20 minutes by car or bus from INU's main campus in Songdo and these are your best transportation options as there is no direct subway route to Songdo. Taxi is another option (about KRW30,000). There will be a toll cost of about KRW to cross the Incheon bridge if you rent a car.

Limousine Bus

One of the most convenient and efficient ways to get to and from Incheon International Airport is via a limousine bus (about KRW7,000). These buses travel to all major areas throughout Korea, and fares vary based on the distance traveled. Limousine and Premium Bus tickets are sold at indoor bus ticketing offices at Airport Exits 4 and 9, and outdoor offices at Exits 4, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13 and 9C. Take the 6707B route which stops at the Incheon Hyatt Hotel, Korea Coast Guard, Orakai Songdo Park Hotel, Benikea Songdo Bridge Hotel and Sheraton Incheon Hotel. Get off at the Sheraton Incheon Hotel and take a taxi or a local bus to the INU campus; just minutes from the hotel. Or, enjoy the walk. For more information on transportation, visit the Incheon International Airport website.

Car Rental

If you prefer to drive out of Incheon International Airport, you can use the Kumho and AVIS car rental services. There are two car rental outlets at exits 2 and 13 on the first floor of Incheon International Airport. Insurance is offered on all rental cars at Seoul Incheon Airports. Cars can be reserved in advance. The campus has plenty of underground parking for visitors and the fee is KRW1,000 for the first five hours or KRW3,000 for the whole day. You can see the road map at GoogleMaps, but the GoogleMaps phone app does not give turn-by-turn directions in Korea.

Subway

It can be a little complicated to ride the subway from the Incheon International Airport to Songdo as you will have to transfer from the Airport line to the Incheon line at Gyeyang Station. To buy a ticket, use one of the automated machines (KRW1,150). When purchasing your ticket, it is important to clearly state your destination. Get off at the the Incheon National University station and then walk or take the local bus/taxi to campus. Below is the subway map:

The goal of the IFEZ is to transform these three areas into hubs for logistics, international business, leisure, and tourism for the northeast region. Yeongjong International City’s centers on the Incheon International Airport and is being developed as an eco-friendly airport city.

Songdo City Guide

Students meet the world at Songdo international city.

The Songdo International Business District (IBD) is a global education and business hub in Northeast Asia. It is growing rapidly and is currently home to many high-tech and bio-medical international businesses. Songdo was built from scratch on 1,500 acres of reclaimed land along Incheon’s waterfront about 30 miles from Seoul and 20 minutes from Incheon International Airport.

Forty percent of Songdo is green space. Resident walk or bike to work and school. Visitors enjoy the city’s boutiques, cafés, and lively restaurants. You can take a quiet stroll – or glide in a canoe – through Songdo Central Park’s beautiful 101-acres, relax with a round of golf at the INU affiliated Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Club or take in the view from the 65th-floor of Northeast Asia Trade Tower. For a list major attractions, visit the Incheon Tourism or the Convention Center websites. Below is a copy of the Songdo visitor map.

Getting Around

Around Campus

Jump on the blue INU shuttle buses that circle around campus instead of walking long distances between buildings. The shuttle buses also stops at the Incheon National University subway station and from there it is a short walk to Central Park and downtown Songdo. There is also a special buses that run between INU and the Incheon Global Campus on the south side of Songdo, the Michuhol Campus near the center of Songdo and the Jemulpo Campus in Incheon.

Around Town

Songdo has several bicycle and walking trails, but cars typically will not yield to pedestrians at cross walks. So, be careful when crossing busy streets. For going farther distances into Incheon and beyond, there are many bus stops near campus (see map below) where you can get on a local bus or you can use the subway. Bus stops are also a good place to find a taxi and we recommend the KakaoTaxi phone app as an easy way to call a taxi from wherever you are.

Around Korea

If you plan to see Seoul or other parts of South Korea during your visit, use the subway, express buses and the KTX high speed train. There are even ferries to remote islands, Japan and China. You can learn more about tourism in South Korea at the Visit Korea website.
