GDA Seocho Campus

GDA Seocho is located south of the Han River on the border between Seocho-Gu and Kangnam-Gu in an area commonly referred to as Kangnam. Kangnam was urbanized in the latter half of the 1970s and is a combined residential, business and entertainment area. In recent years the area has taken on more importance as more and more businesses relocate to the newer part of the city. At present it is recognized as the ‘new’ or ‘second’ downtown. The area offers many fine arts, shopping, dining (both western and native), entertainment and recreational venues. The school is located a 10 minute walk from Kangnam Station. Kangnam Station is one of Seoul’s major dining and entertainment areas, and is a convenient hub for travel to other parts of the city.
