…Ok some of you have been waiting for this.
When I first moved into SK Global House I promised to take pictures and videos of the place. Yea, I didn’t do that until my LAST day there! Sorry! >.< Without further ado:
(Starting from bottom to top)
B4: Parking Garage
B3: Kitchen, Presentation Room, Music Room (2), Bathrooms, Parking Garage.
There’s quite a few ‘work areas’ so many people can be cooking at the same time. I didn’t take a close up because they were all pretty dirty. Basically a microwave and two burners at each. No ovens.
Presentation room: Theres a huge drop-down screen on the far wall, a podium with a mic, tons of place to sit, and …..
Stair well: You can take the stairs all the way up to the rooms. The stairs are a good form of exercise so I usually like to take them over the elevator except doing so SUCKS at SK Global. There are NO windows in the stairwell so it still has that construction smell and it’s very musty and hot. By the time I get up to my room I’m panting and can’t breath.
*If you’re living on B1 PLEASE USE THE STAIRS! Taking the elevator up one flight is pure laziness and everyone taking the elevator with you will hate your guts. Yea, that’s right. As soon as the door closes behind you the rest of us curse you up and down.
B2 (dorm side, only residents have access): Main Computer Room, Men’s and Women’s Laundry Room, Laundry Service, Gym, Mail boxes, Male Dorms.
This floor is also the main access into the dorm area from the lobby.
Mail room: If you have any large packages the front desk will put a note on your mail box. You need to sign for your large packages at the front desk.
Computer room: Some don’t work. Some are missing mice. >.< It’s a convenient place to sit and wait for your laundry to finish though. Guys are always in there playing video games.
Laundry service: You can have your laundry cleaned for you. Nayoung had her shoes cleaned one day and they came out pretty good. Only open Monday – Friday.
Female Laundry Room:
Cost of Laundry:
Detergent & Dryer sheet package: 500won
SOOO cheap compared to my school in the states!!!!
B2 (The part anyone can go to): Lobby, GS 25 (convenience store, open 24/7), Cafe Kkini (cafeteria), Caribou Coffee, Burger & Shake, Nail Salon, Barounson (stationary/school supplies shop), Travel Agency, Pathways to the two nearest buildings underground.
B1-3: Male Dorms (Single and Double), Lounge (TV, water filter, computer, chairs, tables), 2 Study Rooms (one has a computer), Drying room (for laundry)
See pictures for floors 4-7 (they’re the same….just the door colors are different)
4-7: Female Dorms (Single and Double), Lounge (TV, water filter, computer, chairs, tables), 2 Study Rooms (one has a computer), Drying room (for laundry)
This is the view from the window in the elevator lobby on 5th flood. This building is the old International House dorm. It’d being renovated. It should be open for the fall semester. The layout is VERY different from SK Global.
Well! That’s it! I’ll post the video of the walking tour of the 5th floor soon. All the floors are the same except B1 – B4.
