There are several banks near the campus, with the closest being the Industrial Bank of Korea (IBK) located in Technopark Station and Woori Bank located in Yonsei.
There are several ATMs around the campus offering services in both English and Korean. You can withdraw/deposit or transfer money using your bank book or card.
To transfer money from your home country to Korea (or vice versa), the sender will need to know the following information: 1) the name of the bank and bank swift code, 2) address of the bank, 3) account number of the receiver and name of the account owner. Domestic transfers to other Korean bank accounts can be done at ATMs, and you can receive assistance for overseas transactions at the bank.
Currency can be exchanged at any bank, but you must have your passport with you. There is a money exchange section at most banks with a display of the exchange rates (which usually include the commission). The bank staff can assist you.
In addition to international shipping companies, Korea has its own national postal service to which you can send letters and packages domestically or abroad.
Letters typically cost around 480~1,000 KRW depending on the weight and destination. Parcels and packages are usually between 9,000~30,000 KRW depending on the weight and destination. Domestic shipping usually takes less than one week. To send domestic mail, you should know the receiver's name, address, and phone number.
Korea Post offers an Express Mail Service for sending international mail. Pack your items (or buy a box at the post office and pack there) and fill out the free label provided at the post office. Be sure to ask an employee to ensure that you fill out the right label for your type of mail and destination.
