There are several ATMs around the campus offering services in both English and Korean. You can
withdraw/deposit or transfer money using your bank book or card.
To transfer money from your home country to Korea (or vice versa), the sender will need to know the
following information: 1) the name of the bank and bank swift code, 2) address of the bank, 3) account number of the
receiver and name of the account owner. Domestic transfers to other Korean bank accounts can be done at ATMs, and
you can receive assistance for overseas transactions at the bank.
Currency can be exchanged at any bank, but you must have your passport with you. There is a money
exchange section at most banks with a display of the exchange rates (which usually include the commission). The bank
staff can assist you.
