“Definitely worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

If you are in the area, Tsinghua University is definitely worth visiting. With a lovely campus, based on Harvard University initially, and then with a Russian influence, it is fully of history and great to see.

“A truly revered place in China”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

I was lucky to have spent some time in the Fine Arts and the architecture departments, and was most impressed by the work of the students which is exhibited on the ground floors and open to public, very creative and original.

Some of the buildings and the overall atmosphere has to be experienced, but extremely inspiring

It's one of the best universities in China. It has great impact on China's recent history. If you want to feel the life of Chinese smartest youth, you must go there.

“While the Campus is beautiful don't put it on your itinerary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

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.

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.

“Wouldn't go out the way for it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

I visited the University because a friend had a lecture. I spent a good four hours walking around the park and the lakes. I didn't realise they were there until I took a wrong turn! I sat and watched a lot of dancers who seemes to be doing a strange mix of ballroom, lindy-hop and disco dancing. Very interesting and made for a nice day.
I wouldn't recommend it if you're not in Beijing for long but it is a nice university campus.
