The photos were taken at Dankook University Cheonan Campus. We stayed in the dorms there during orientation. Overall the accommodations were very nice. I absolutely love the warm floors. The absolute best is when you crawl out of bed to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and the floor is nice and warm! However, the thermostat was not particularly fond of the button that is supposed to turn down the heat. Every time we would come back from a lecture our room was like the Amazon. Despite the fact that it was the middle of winter, we would frequently have the window open. I suppose this was to make up for the fact that the hallways are not heated? None of the hallways were heated and this was definitely obvious if you sat to close to the door when you ate in the cafeteria. Some people though did not seem to mind the cold and left the door hanging wide open for all of the cold air to come flooding into the cafeteria. That door was my arch nemesis. :P Enjoy!

The little cabinet on the far right is for your shoes. you can see the area right in front of the door where you are supposed to take off your shoes. We both received a really cheap pair of white slippers that we were to wear inside the room.
