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 just to walk on their campus and take pictures at the gate.
Inside it really has beautiful architecture and history. The outside is quite beautiful to look at and you could spend an hour walking around enjoying the scenery.
Don't go out of your way to see this unless you have a friend there you want to visit.
It's a beautiful campus with a lot of history.
A lot of students from all over the world come here. Mostly Korean and Japanese.
