UNIST is thrilled to announce the completion of its student dormitory refurbishment, ensuring a warm and inviting atmosphere for students in the upcoming second semester.
Over the past year, extensive renovations have taken place in the UNIST Dormitory with the aim of providing students comfortable and well-equipped spaces for relaxation and study.
This year, UNIST is proud to announce that a renovation project for two additional on-campus student dormitory buildings has been successfully completed. These buildings comprise 128 households and 384 rooms. The improvements were carried out as part of comprehensive environmental enhancement initiatives, with specific focus placed on buildings 304 and 305, which were constructed in 2010. An investment of 1.3 billion won allowed us to transform existing double rooms into single rooms with customized furniture designed to optimize space utilization. Additionally, efforts were made to enhance the internal environment by replacing LED lights and refreshing wallpaper.
At UNIST, providing high-quality accommodation for our students has always been a top priority. We have implemented various successful initiatives within our first UNIST Dormitory across three dormitory buildings—earning them a well-deserved reputation as highly sought-after residences among students. Building upon this success, we are delighted to extend these improvements further through the recent completion of our student dormitory living environment improvement project. Now, a total of five dormitory buildings—including the first UNIST Dormitory—are equipped with one-room systems per person. This expansion provides our students an even wider range of choices when it comes to their living arrangements.
To commemorate this remarkable achievement—the “Second UNIST Dormitory Environment Improvement Project“—a special ceremony was held at UNISPARK on Friday, August 25, 2023. Esteemed attendees included President Yong Hoon Lee, Vice President Jaiyong Lee, Dean Jeongyeon Kim of Student Affairs, and representatives from UNIST Student Council, along with residents from various student dormitories. During presentations at the event, Director Bongsuk Kwon—Head of UNIST Dormitory—provided updates on the project’s progress. The successful conclusion of this endeavor was celebrated through a symbolic ribbon-cutting ceremony, symbolizing shared accomplishment and unity.
“I am pleased that we secured funding early, allowing us to complete the renovation project for the second UNIST Dormitory ahead of schedule,” said President Lee. “We will continue prioritizing student welfare and ensuring they can fully enjoy their campus life without any inconvenience.”
