I visited at during week-end. Easy to access, you can walk, visit main building (underground level) students working, eating, some family visiting university with their kids, no stress, good place to be calm. It is not touristic place but a heritage of education.

Situated on its own hill. Korea University runs its own shuttle service into campus. I took a taxi there. I also found out this university is serviced by airport bus. Good to explore the grounds of one famous university in Seoul.
