The completion ceremony began with a construction progress report on Ilshin Hall, the Ajou University President’s commemorative speech, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
In his commemorative speech, President Choi said, “Despite the tiring and difficult challenges posed by COVID-19 over the past two years, Ajou University continued to prepare for the future of its students, as represented by Ilshin Hall and Yulgok Hall Innovation Sharing Lounge, and we can see such efforts bearing fruit today.” He added, “We hope Ilshin Hall will serve as a venue where students returning to campus can go beyond departmental boundaries to communicate and work together.”
Ilshin Hall has a total floor space of 4,441 pyeong (around 14,680 m2), one basement level and 11 above-ground floors. It is equipped with community facilities, a multi-purpose hall, a lounge, a convenience store, and a coffee shop.
