Student apartments are located at the northwest of campus, with three types of rooms including single room with bathroom, double room with shared bathroom, and triple room with shared bathroom. International students are normally allocated single rooms in Heyuan Building 4 and 5. A request should be made at the Campus Housing Services to switch rooms or change to a double room.
Each single room has its own bathroom, shower and is equipped with air conditioner, basic furniture and Internet access. Please note that students are required to buy their own mattress and bedding.
There are a number of apartments for rental around campus, for instance, SoFunLand, located in Tanglang provides decent student apartments and shuttle services for tenants. It is the student’s responsibility to secure off campus accommodation. On average, off campus housing costs more than dormitories on campus.
The SIGS campus currently has two canteens providing a variety of dishes including Halal food, regional Chinese dishes as well as a milk tea shop to cater for students with varying needs.
Opening hours for the cafeterias are 07:00- 09:00 (breakfast), 11:30-13:00 (lunch), and 17:00-19:00 (dinner). If you require a special diet whether for medical, religious or personal reasons, please do not hesitate to contact the cafeteria staff. Two convenience stores are also located near the SIGS dorms. The stores open at 8am and close at midnight.
Apart from canteens on the Tsinghua SIGS campus, students can dine in restaurants on other campuses in the University Town. Shang Shu fang Café and Starbucks are located at PKU’s PHBS building, while Subway and Hong Kong Bistro are located in Yanyuan, near PKU dorms (all accessible within a walking distance).
Pingshan Village, just outside of University Town, is also famous for its late night street food and cheap delicacies.
