A few of my colleagues graduated from this great university, founded in 1911. For both 2018 and 2017, The World University Rankings recognized it as the 14th best university in the world. It is a large university with over 36,000 students and a 395-hectare campus. For engineering (Tsinghua ranks #1 in the world) and computer science, it outranks the USA’s Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). For graduate employability, it ranks as the third best in the world. Its famous alumni include President Xi Jinping, Hu Jintao, Wen Yiduo, John Fairbank, and many other Chinese and a few non-Chinese notables. It is a very beautiful campus and has a great faculty.

I like the traditional elements at Tsinghua University. The Pagodas, the pavilions, the lotus flower pond, bridges and hills were just part of a traditional and beautiful Chinese garden. No wonder the campus was part of the Palace in the past. Visiting Tsinghua University is to visit a Palace without paying any admission fee.
The campus is big, so if you don’t want to walk too much, you can catch the campus shuttles. My recommendation is to walk around the campus to experience another great university in China.
The students here are full of energy. Seeing them studying hard and playing hard is for sure to make me feel young too.

The University occupies what used to be an imperial palace. It is a little green highland in this busy city

Nothing spectacular but if your stay around Wu Dao Kou (the place where most foreign students stay while studying chinese at BLCU), then it is worth going to Tsinghua University for a walk around the park. There is a nice park inside. Of course, you can also observe/see the rich tradition & history of this University.

Historically, construction in Tsinghua University was actually originally funded by the US Government, so Tsinghua has some visible America influence in its architecture. Personally I like the traditional elements at Tsinghua University. The Pagodas, the pavilions, the lotus flower pond, bridges and hills were just part of a traditional and beautiful Chinese garden. No wonder the campus was part of the Palace in the past. Jetbay recommended us to rent a bicycle to ride around the whole campus. It is truly a place worth visiting!

If you want to select one university to check out, go to Beijing University (Beijing Da Xue). Much more beautiful and authentic from an architectural perspective. Tsinghua is more modern, and one might appreciate some nice modern buildings too

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.

Summary-
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.

This place resembles an American college (in contrast to the nearby Beida, which is more traditionally Chinese.) The campus is HUGE, and I got lost walking around there.

Come with a friend or a local who know the place well, so you don't just get the atmosphere but also some history of the place.
