I did a summer school at Sichuan University, therefore we lived on the campus. The campus is beautiful, has many facilities and is very green. Moreover the campus has many small shops where you can buy decent food. It's a very peaceful place compared to other Chengdu areas and gives a great impression of what the Chinese studentlife is like.

Sichuan University is one of the big 10 Universities in China. Three campuses with very different flairs and architectures, the medical campus is particularly impressive with its historic buildings and lotus ponds. A larger-tan-life statue of Chairman Mao waves at the visitor in the main campus.

A genuine old and real place to visit in Chengdu. We visited by bike and enjoyed it. Not touristy, many locals gather around the small pond to take bird photos or paint.

I visited the Sichuan University because it was close to my hotel. It was crowded with tourists taking selfies. I gave the university four stars because it is a lot nicer than some of the tourists attractions I've actually paid to see.

Not what most people would put on their list of places to visit I guess? Academic standards aside, this large landscaped campus is just a great place for a stroll. The grounds are wooded, home to some interesting architecture and most importantly you are away from the traffic. Bigger, quieter and better than many inner city parks. If you are... More

Sichuan University has more than one campus. Previously I had been to the city campus near Wangjiang Pavilion Park which was not that interesting. This time I caught a bus from that area to another campus south near the airport. This campus was quite attractive and very pleasant to walk around. There is a decent sizes lake, and wooded park...

I've studied there for 6 months thanks to the Confucius Institute scholarship. The dorm for foreigners is near the north gate, rooms are quite small and the toilet is shared, there are 2 showers and 2 wc (turkish one) each floor. The fuwuyuan are very nice and they clean the toilet once per day. There are a kitchen and a... More

Sichuan University can be honorably called one of the best universities in China. Today, this university consists of three beautiful campuses: Wangjiang, Huaxi and Jiang'an. It creates perfect opportunities to learn something and in the future find your place in the world.

It is a university, it has some nice spots to take a couple photos but if you don't have business on campus then there are much better places to be in chengdu.

I had the opportunity to visit the Sichuan University this past summer to participate in a two week summer program. This is a great university to teach with three great campuses in the city of Chengdu. I teached at the Wangjang campus in the center of Chengdu. You don't feel that you are in a busy city when you are... More
