I may be a little biased since I work very near to campus, but I believe believe this is China's version of Harvard. Besides being a place where many students strive to study, many Chinese nationals are always flocking to this university simply to visit. People are always snapping photos here especially in front of the famous arch. I eat... More

Lovely campus, with especially elegant architecture in the western region. If you want to visit the campus as an individual (as opposed to going with a tour group), make sure you enter a gate by 4:30 pm. The gates are closed to visitors afterwards. Also, bring your ID as they check it at the entrance.

I spent only a few ours visiting the campus, but it really impressed me! I didn't feel like in China at all when I was there, because the architecture is so different! The campus is almost like a park, beautiful!

in my 6 months here, the best/historical parts of the campus is located at the West entrance. The campus is pretty big and a good way to get around would be by bicycles. There are many students and staffs on bikes and mopeds around, so do look out for traffic when you are taking pictures around on campus. The most... More

Qinghua University is the excellence of Chinese education, and this is visible in its campus, too. Vast, green, with all the facilities students need: it's a village. Inside there's also a lake area, a temple and nice streams in Chinese style.

Although it is an university, it's not for sightseeing. It is very beautiful, peaceful and historical that you can't miss it. It established by U.S. around WWI and it kept some U.S. style buildings and facilities. You must visit the old library and there is a crystal library and it is made by glasses. It also displays some pictures showing... More

I went to visit Tsinghua University with my colleague who visited her friend working here. I was quite surprised when entering this campus...as it has beautiful lakes and during the summer months the lakes are full with beautiful lotuses. The big weeping willow tress nearby add on to the serene and peaceful surrounding. I visited during summer and visiting this... More

This is a University campus (next to Peking University). You can view both the old buildings and the newest (super modern) ones, and learn about the university education through the Chinese history. I recommend you cross the campus, by walk, bike or car, for a glance at busy students, who form the elite of the country's administration, technology and business.

Huge clean campus, clean air-conditioned buildings, nice little green yards and plants in the middle. Academics have good understanding of English, but most of them have studied abroad. Very impressive!

Famous university with its own nice extensive campus in west Beijing. There is a nice courtyard restaurant inside the university which serve tasty Beijing cuisine. Recommend to find time to try it but may need to be invited by a member of staff.
