The university was funded by the monies received by USA as a compensation in the wake of the Boxer Rising. The US government was generous enough to donate it to have a university built for Chinese students. It is one of the pretigious institutes of education in China. Visitors may be screened or given approval before being admitted

The Tsinghua campus is an old campus built in early 20th century on American model. Nothing extraordinary, it has a flavor of Harvard and Princeton, but it is in China... There are more interesting places to visit in Beijing, in particular the Yuan Ming Yuan garden, which is walking distance from Tsinghua.

It's a very peaceful campus and there are many places to explore and get lost in nature. You can almost imagine all the great scholars that used to walk the campus.

Pleasant to walk around. Lots of greenery. It's the most famous university in China. Worth checking the box.

If you want to select one university to check out, go to Beijing University (Beijing Da Xue). Much more beautiful and authentic from an architectural perspective. Tsinghua is more modern, and one might appreciate some nice modern buildings too

The University occupies what used to be an imperial palace. It is a little green highland in this busy city

If you have visited the major attractions of Beijing and would like to see a modern Chinese university, I would recommend visiting this campus. It took us one hour ride in the metro to get there, but we were happy that we made the trip. The campus is truly huge, very green, very clean and well kept, lots of trees,... More

A friend is studying in the Tsinghua University and invited me over. I went and realised that the campus is extremely huge! You can walk for hours. There's apparently a nice lake (that I didn't manage to reach) and a lots of beautiful green grassed lawns (that you cannot sit on). Had dinner at the canteen - payment can only... More

The guards on the gate don't like letting non-students into the grounds, but if you know someone studying there and can show their name and address on campus you can usually get in. There are some lovely lakes and areas to visit, also worth eating at one of the many restaurants or cafes if you can find them!
