Hongik University Station is a station on the Seoul Subway Line 2. As its name indicates, it serves the nearby Hongik University. The Hongdae area around the station and the university is famous for being the nightclub and entertainment mecca of northwestern Seoul. At first, the station was known as Donggyo Station, named after the neighborhood that it serves.

As of December 2010, it has become a transfer station to A'REX and is planned to connect to the Gyeongui Line in December of 2012.
