Seokyeong University [서경대학교] or SKU for short, is a private university located in Seoul’s neighborhood Jeongneung [Jeongneung-dong/정릉동], in the Seongbuk District [Seongbuk-gu/성북구]. This university was originally established as Hanguk College [한국대학] in October 1947 and moved (after a couple of name changes) to the current campus. In April 1992, the college received university status and was renamed ‘Seokyeong University’ in September of the same year. Among the university’s symbols is the Royal Azalea, which represents “Beauty, Korean image of strong vitality, passion”. Actor Jang Ki-yong is an alumnus of this university.
Hyein Building [혜인관], originally a 5-storey brick building, was heightened to 7-storeys with the addition of repurposed storage containers, coloured in grey and yellow. This extension houses facilities for the Department of Film and Design, such as filming studios and editing rooms.
