Tourist Spot Educational Site
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. Add Tsinghua University to your Beijing travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Beijing trip itinerary planner.

  • 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.
  • The most famous university in China, like Oxford and Cambridge in UK. Quit and beautiful, good place to stay.
  • Nice. Got info during Education Expo 2016 at Milan Mela, Kolkata, India. (BedaniNaresh)
  • Just finished a course here and it's a wonderful University. Take a stroll and you will understand why this is one of the best University in China.
  • If you are here to visit, enter through the east gate, where you don't have to wait. Remember to pretend that you are a student.
