Last fall I moved to a new neighbourhood closer to downtown Seoul. On my first weekend riding around, I randomly happened upon an entire abandoned university. The Seoul campus was too expensive to run, so they moved to a new campus outside city limits and just left this one behind. The demolition process has taken at least a year so far. About a third of the buildings have been knocked down by now. Here are a few of my favourites.

1. Here's the front gate. I just walked right in, and the security guard in his shack didn't even bother looking up. I was about to tap on the glass and ask for permission to look around, but then I thought better and ran.


2. My first visit, the campus was still pretty much in the same condition since it had closed.


3. A bunch of photos I found on the ground outside.


4. There's a very good lookout point next to the Indian embassy where you can see into the other side of campus.


5. I never did get closer to these totem poles.


6. My wife is probably the only urban explorer ever to wear neon pink during an infiltration with high security.


7. The science building was the easiest to infiltrate.


8.


9. Be careful around methly alcohol.


10.


11.


12. Night time is a good time to wander around without being spotted.


13. Peeking under the gate. You can see a security shack on the right.


14. The same machine and shack, seen from inside.


15. Some pleasant fall foliage.


16.


17.


18. Once I spent 20 minutes in this building with two friends, hiding under the staircase and waiting for security to go away.


19.


20. Despite the security, the mountain side approach was always wide open.


21. This is actually two buildings.


22. We were pursued by a very slow-moving machine.


23.


24. Some very interesting murals in one building.


25. Most recently.


26.


27. It's hard taking 30-second exposure shots when you've got a woman tugging at your sleeve.


28. I never got in this building.

Loads of lovely details in this explore...excellent site. The pagoda-type shelter and the totem poles are my favourites. I like the found photos, too. Good stuff! :mrgreen:

Yep, it's a water cooler. I saw it, thought it would be a good subject, then I went into the washroom and forgot about it. It wasn't until after I left the building, when I remembered the water cooler, and I went all the way back in just for that one photo.

What an amazing place, can't believe they've just left it like that. Love the sports hall, you can imagine sitting there waiting for a basketball game to start. Love the labs with all the test tubes etc, and love all the outside of the buildings. And the pagoda and totem poles. Love it all.

Cheers racetraiter, looks like an amazing explore.
