Kwangwoon University Station (formerly Seongbuk Station) is a train station on the Gyeongwon Line in Seoul, South Korea operated by Korail. It is served by Line 1 of the Seoul Metropolitan Subway system, being one of the original termini of Line 1 along with Incheon Station and Suwon Station when Line 1 opened in 1974. Seongbuk Depot, one of the 5 depots of Line 1, is located nearby. It is also the current western terminus of the Gyeongchun Line, although trains traveling between Seoul and Chuncheon depart from Cheongnyangni Station.


Seongbuk Station was renamed Kwangwoon University Station on February 25, 2013.[4] It was formerly subnamed Kwangwoon University.
