Jukjeon Station is a station on the Bundang Line, located in Jukjeon-dong of Suji-gu, Yongin. It opened on Christmas Eve 2007 and plays a crucial role in relieving the traffic congestion of the northwestern part of Yongin. It is also the closest station to the Jukjeon campus of Dankook University, with shuttle buses expected to run between the university and the station.

This station is unique in that it is built into the Jukjeon Shinsegae Department Store.

Jukjeon station is also called Dankook University Station due to its proximity to a university campus with the corresponding name. Announcements in subway trains refer to this station as both Jukjeon Station and Dankook University Station.
