According to Chinese national ranking this is the 5th best university campus in China. It's like a city: there are restaurants, dorms, a huge park, libraries, lake... Worth spending at least a couple of hours there. Don't forget to bring your passport as you need it to get in.

Visiting a university campus might seem a little strange and there isn't that much to do here. But it's a lovely campus with a nice lake and en route to the beach after you've visited the nearby temple. Worth a stroll!

A lot of domestic tourists here. Its a nice campus, probably really beautiful by Chinese or Asian standards and lots of greenery but if you've been to university in Europe or UK, or anywhere with a campus Pre-1850s this will look like just another university campus to you, and probably not the most beautiful or grand. the art/graffiti tunnel is...

I have met people from all over the world in this great university. There is a really inspiring gent Dr Bill Brown, who is an American Honorary Chinese Citizen, who speaks not just fluently but tells jokes in Mandarin. Just a beautiful clean lovely place

Apparently it's a reasonably famous university. The grounds are vast and beautiful and relaxing for a nice stroll. Everyone is quite pleasant and helpful. No really activity other than a nice Sunday stroll. Long lines on entry and foreigners need their passport ID to enter

I'm not normally a fan of visiting campuses in China, but this place really deserves a visit. There is this amazing tunnel with tons of graffiti that you must check out. I would also try the cafeteria food as well. Good stuff!

A walk through this University reminds you of old world buildings and architecture. The University is only open to the public at certain times of the day, so check before you go. Enjoy strolling the grounds and of course you are going to see lots of students!

A nice place to spend for couple of hours and good to visit it after visiting the temple next to it. Pay attention about the entry time. It is restricted to public.
