Tsinghua University (清华大学)

Founded in 1911 on funds remitted from the Boxer Rebellion indemnities – imposed by the victorious foreign forces that quelled the uprising – Tsinghua was initially used as a preparatory college for students going to study in the United States. Like Peking, Tsinghua’s campus is a former Qing dynasty royal park and a lot of consideration has gone into ensuring the new architectural additions to the grounds blend in with the character of the older structures. The campus covers an incredible 3,000,000 square metres (756 acres), so unless you have a full day to wander round, you’ll have to prioritise what you want to see.
