Interesting Architecture

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.

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
