Kangnam University is a private Christian university located in Yongin, South Korea. Founded July 1, 1946, by Reverend Yi Ho-bin as the Choong-ang Theology Institute, the school initially met at a lecture hall in the local Seoul YMCA in Seoul, South Korea. The institution eventually moved in 1967 to Jangsa-dong in Seoul and then to the Daechi-dong, Gangnam-gu of Seoul in 1974. In 1976, the school was renamed the Kangnam Social Welfare School; the name, which the university kept to this day, comes from the city ward it was located in at the time. In 1980, the school left Seoul and moved to its present location in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Kangnam received its university accreditation in 1992. EverLine has a station located near the university.
