Main Campus


The Main Campus of Dongseo University spans an area of 82 acres on a scenic mountainside in central Busan. It consists of 24 primary buildings equipped with the best classroom, laboratory and special research facilities in the region. The world-class infrastructure at DSU has been steadily developing throughout its relatively short history. Dongseo was the first university in Korea to develop a campus-wide, high-speed information network, and it was also the first to develop a WiBro campus. Today, students stay connected using free Wifi services covering the entire campus grounds.
