The Republic of Korea, as one of the safest countries in the world, enjoys one of the lowest crime rates.
In most student towns, like Jayang-dong, it is generally safe to travel around at any time—day or night. While many may not speak English fluently, most locals are willing to assist in an emergency.
Since your safety is our paramount concern, all campus buildings and most dormitories have closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras at the entry points. Security officers are stationed at important locations and patrol the campuses. Should you need any assistance or feel threatened at any time, alert one of them.
Furthermore, please follow the basic commonsense inn regards to personal safety, like travelling with friends, especially if it is very late in the evening, letting others know where you are going, being aware of your personal belongings and keeping them safe and secure.
Feel free to contact a Student Services Officer at any time if you are concerned about anything to do with your safety or well-being, or feel threatened on campus or in your dormitory.
If upon an Emergency, you cannot reach a Student Services Officer, dial 119—the National Emergency line for emergencies services with details about where you are and what is required
