I was expecting something something spectacular and was quite disappointed. But some of their campus area is very nice with a lake and blossoms. Quite pretty..

There is no admission at all, the campus is always clean, quiet and well organized. I've been there in the morning and there are even people doing their morning exercise there, really local!

we spent a 3 month sabbatical in china, with Tsinghua as home base. It's a beautiful campus and fun place to live, with apartments and stores. Probably not much of a tourist destination unless you have academic leanings.

Great place for a stroll and take in the parks and greenery interspaced with the faculty buildings. Note the architecture which points to certain era.

If you are in the area, Tsinghua University is definitely worth visiting. With a lovely campus, based on Harvard University initially, and then with a Russian influence, it is fully of history and great to see.

I was lucky to have spent some time in the Fine Arts and the architecture departments, and was most impressed by the work of the students which is exhibited on the ground floors and open to public, very creative and original. Some of the buildings and the overall atmosphere has to be experienced, but extremely inspiring

It's one of the best universities in China. It has great impact on China's recent history. If you want to feel the life of Chinese smartest youth, you must go there.

Sure it's right near the old summer palace. And it's easy to get to if you want to visit wu dao kou, Bei Da, old summer palace and to see some shadow puppets but only do this if you have time. If you are only spending 3-4 days in Beijing I wouldn't recommend you going all the way out there... More

I visited the University because a friend had a lecture. I spent a good four hours walking around the park and the lakes. I didn't realise they were there until I took a wrong turn! I sat and watched a lot of dancers who seemes to be doing a strange mix of ballroom, lindy-hop and disco dancing. Very interesting and... More
