This is probably one of the most beautifully situated universities in the world! It's on the coast, with its own beach, beautiful grounds, and impressive architecture. We visited several buildings with displays of illustrious persons who had taught or lectured or visited the university in the past. It's considered on of the important sights of Xiamen.

Xiamen University is a must-see if you find yourself in this lovely city. It has a great reputation as a place for locals to gain higher education and a great place for foreigners to study Chinese language. But, even if you're not a student, I think it is a beautiful place to walk around and meet people. The cool thing about being on a college campus is that there are always plenty of young locals that are anxious to speak english with you. You might even find yourself a great local tour guide and new Chinese friends. It is a beautiful campus!!

...I would definetely study at Xiamen University. because of the campus. It provides a tranquil walking paths between old and new style buildings and gardens. The laid-back atmosphere takes you out of China for a moment...just few steps from the beach... the cantine isn't the best of but there is plenty of budget luch options just outside the main gate, so you can even "dabao" and enjoy your meal at the beach...

The campus is well worth a visit and is a great place to kill a few hours. Lovely gardens and exhibitions detailing the history of the University. Great views of Xiamen's best beach. Visit the art tunnel, A collection of student artwork. Sit by the lake and enjoy the sunshine. All this at no cost. It's a no brainer.

big university ground for strolling. There's a big lake in the middle of the campus where you can sit and enjoy the view. It is near the beach area and nanputou temple. In the beach area, you can rent a bike for 30 rmb/hour but you need to leave a deposit of 300rmb.
