The campus is located in Muju County within the North Jeolla Province of South Korea (about a 3-hour drive south of Seoul, the location of the Kukkiwon). The Taekwondowon campus measures approximately 3,300 square kilometers. Facilities include a large arena, training centers, a theater, a museum, a restaurant, dormitories, and an administrative building.
