The International House II provides a total 75 rooms for 149 exchange students and foreign professors. The first and the tenth floor are each equipped with a lunchroom, a laundry room, a cafeteria, a studying room and a lounge.
“Ewha invites more than 300 students from various countries every semester,” said Lee Lim-kyung, the official in charge of the International House II. “The more Ewha is prepared to accommodate exchange students coming to Ewha, the more chances are offered for students to participate in the Exchange Student Program. Therefore, the construction of the International House II will allow more opportunities for students studying abroad.”
