Huge university with historic and cultural significance

Here on an exchange, and the campus is beautiful in Autumn. A pretty popular spot among domestic tourists especially. Would be nice to get a bike and cycle around.

Tsinghua University is the #1 ranked Chinese University in Engineering. It has a fabulous campus, with lots of old buildings scattered with new. The lotus park itself is very beautiful and they have lovely monuments and statues around. If you are an academic, this is a must visit university.

It was our honour to visit Tsinghua University, ranked in the Top 20 World universities ranking for the past two years. The scale was vast and gives the visitor an understanding of the modern Chinese focus on education and research. A must visit when you visit Beijing

Its a big campus and a lot of walking is needed. The architecture is unique as it is a good blend of western and chinese architecture.

The campus of Tsing Hua University is located to the east of Peking University, and stretches over a huge area. There are many interesting buildings to see, and some parts are like a park. There is also a gigantic swimming pool.

This is among the top universities in China. Very large campus that is accesible through gates. So you might need to walk a bit. Be aware of electric bikes, motor-bikes, etc. Not much to see but I guess a good place to study (if you know Mandarin...)

Been here on exchange for one semester and the scenary in the school was amazing. Enter by the West Gate (Xi-Men) if you're coming from yuan ming yuan or yi he yuan. Do note that you will need a ID to enter. If not, take a cab or bus over to Dong-Bei Men where you can enter the school without... More

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.
