The main gate (north) is beautiful with lily pad laden ponds and a traditional doorway. I frequent the main campus to play basketball on one of the biggest public courts available in the city. The competition there can range from casual to really tough.

A nice place for a walk. The campus is huge... in parts of the campus we felt like we had already ventured out since people and vehicular traffic was quite high. Old buildings, lots of big trees... guess if you like history you may enjoy the campus, but for me it lacked wow factor.

It was too much like walking through any other campus Ive seen elsewhere. I am sure students there get a very fine education, but I do not rate it as a tourist attraction.

Pretty huge University! walked inside to check out. What is interesting is when you enter the students dorm area. Take a short stroll and just check out this interesting university if you have never stepped in any other university that is in China.

It is supposedly the best Uni in North West/South West China. It is huge and offers different subjects, located quite centrally just inside the first ring road by the computer centre. There are also many international students from Asian countries like Nepal, India and Pakistan studying there

I was hosted by the Chengdu University as part of my MBA degree. The students and lecturers were really kind and friendly. The place is rather big and I recommend trying the rikshas to travel within the campus. If you choose to walk - you must buy yourself fresh pineapple on a stick. A real treat.

Even though I was visiting at a time when there were no performances or exhibitions, walking around the conservatory was quite nice. I was actually in Chengdu, in part, to visit the conservatory on business, but I think it would be a good spot to visit for any tourist. I also stayed two nights at the Philharmonic Hotel SCCM while... More

I work at a university in the United States, so was curious to see Sichuan University when I visited Chengdu recently. I'm glad I visited. It's a lovely campus, well worth a stroll, and everyone seemed friendly. We also had no problem stepping inside several classrooms and other facilities. If you're interested in higher education in China, it's worth a... More

This is a nice place to visit and its museum is worth seeing. You will not see the great beauty of a place like Oxford here but it is a relaxing place. Lots of good restaurants around the school.
