Good photo spot
Nov 2019 • Family
Felt surprise when realise an U can become a popular photo spot in Kunming city. But it is true. When the time we came, we saw many local and tourist taking photo at every corner side.
The building seem very vintage style. There is a big greeny field. There is also a Maidenhair Road as we can see yellow leaves along the pathway during fall season.
Visited on Nov 2019.

Beautiful campus
Apr 2019 • Couples
A beautiful campus with lots of steps! Put on your walking shoes. Near the Green Lake Hotel. but you still might want to take a cab. Go to the East gate not the front (more challenging to tell the driver) and there are no steps and lots of shops and restaurants outside.

Interesting

My husband and I didn't plan on visiting here, we just decided to go in while on our way to a restaurant. It was nice, quiet and not crowded. It looked liked a old ghost university, Creepy, yet cool experience. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it again.

Plenty of history here
Apr 2018 • Friends
Lucky to have someone show me the museum dedicated to the National Southwest Affiliate University (国立南西联合大学)which I had never heard of. This was formed by fleeing academics and students from 3 universities (Beijing University, Tsinghua and Nansha) when the Japs invaded northern China in 1937.

After this we went to see the memorial to one of the famous poets/activists (闻一多,Wen YiDuo) during this era near the Green Lake 翠湖。 He was murdered by the KMT in 1945 outside his home.

Beautiful, quieter area generally to walk around with lot of nice places to eat. After this we walked a very short distance to the western part of Green Lake (not very green right now) 翠湖西路 and visited the excellent Yunnan Military Academy where we learnt about the joint US/China tiger moth air raids (飞虎队)on the Japs in 1944.

A visit to China's top university
Mar 2018 • Business
A visit to the renowned Yunnan University is indeed an eye-opening for me as it has different faculties with high quality professors and programs. Though old (established in 1922), the university buildings and associated facilities are still in good shape for at least another 100 years or so. The campus is very beautiful with many grown-up trees and well-manicured gardens.

Very beautiful campus & one of China’s most prestigious universities
Dec 2017 • Friends
I got a tour of the campus from a friend who is working for the government, and preparing write-ups on significant places and events which took place at them. It is a very nice campus and has a lot of stately buildings – some of which are of traditional Chinese design - as would be expected for a university with approximately 31,000 students and growing. The student mix is about 16,000 undergraduates, 15,000 postgraduates, and 100 doctoral students.

The Yunnan University of Kunming, founded in 1922, is one of the national key universities and has national and provincial key protection units. It started as a privately-run institution operating under the name “University of the Eastern Land.” The university has about 700-degree programs, and its student body includes about 1,000 from other countries.

The university’s motto is “Integrity, Excellence in Scholarly Attainments, and Greatness in Career Pursuits.”

For me, the visit was a nice walk from Green Lake Hotel. Both the Green Lake area and the campus grounds are beautiful, peaceful, and home to many very nice trees. The bottom metre of many of the trees is painted white with a solution to protect the trees from certain bugs.

Leisurely stroll through a nice campus
Sep 2017 • Solo
I took a leisurely stroll through this nice campus. When asking for direction, people are so nice to help. There are several older buildings with historical significance near the front/main gate where you must take a long stairs to the main building. There are also modern buildings, a good mix.

Nice campus, good area
May 2017 • Couples
Yunnan University has a nice campus with lots of nice scenery. The campus is located near several coffee shops and restaurants. This is a good little detour if you are out walking around Kunming. You can easily go from campus to Green Lake.
