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!

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.
