Tsinghua University, Beijing

4.5
#84 of 1,016 in Things to do in Beijing
Take a tour of Tsinghua University, an educational institution formed in 1911, with a campus that holds many architecturally and historically interesting buildings. Located on the site of what were Qing dynasty royal gardens, the campus retains certain typically Chinese features in its landscape and traditional buildings, including its old main gate. Juxtaposing these stand some with a distinctly Western influence, in particular the classical gymnasium and Greco-Roman style auditorium, both built between 1916 and 1920. Head to the onsite museum to learn about the university's alumni, including President Xi Jinping. With our international travel planner, Beijing attractions like Tsinghua University can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Accompany friends to Yuanmingyuan, back to the road into the north entrance, friends said that year on the 40 points can be on the Peking University, to take photos at the door. I thought that after all these years, still can't let go. Well, help a friend finish her unfinished wish.

  • The research is weak. Education system is too bad. Students are very smart but mostly have twisted mental health.
  • World class university. Top ranking in computer science and engineering. The education quality is exceptional.
  • Amazing ADVANCED University and Amazing Super Extreme ADVANCED Univeristy
  • I was an exchange student here for a year at the School of Economics and Management and it's just a wonderful campus. I love eating in the canteens here and there's 9+ canteens. So many choices from roast duck to scallion pancakes. Everything was really affordable and easy to bike to. Campus is hugeeeeee though.
  • Amazing place. Must visit.
