Good luck trying to go. No info for English speakers, when you do finally get here and find someone that can help, the reservations will be sold out the duration of your stay.

Xiamen University is one of the best universities in China, and its campus is known as the most beautiful in China. The ancient and aesthetic Jiageng architecture, the majestic Jiannan Auditorium, the beautiful Furong Lake, you can often see black swans. All the plants, trees and architecture are very nice and you can enjoy sitting by the lake. You can also see many kinds of wonderful student graffiti in the Furong Tunnel. However, the most important thing is that you have to make a reservation on your phone a few days in advance, otherwise you won't get in.

Unfortunately, access to the campus during CNY was not possible. (pity but understandable). However, the opportunity to walk all around the outer perimeter of the campus gave an excellent overview.

It is a good place to go during afternoon time... full of green and many places nearby that you can have coffee or tea! Xiamen is getting more and more beautiful the last years!

It was totally free to enter before, now according to the regulations, you need to make a appointment to visit, but as I heard that any one who pay cretin amount of money to the security personnel can skip the line and go into the campus.

To register to get in is not an easy, straightforward process. But it is nice, once you are in. The 2 highlights were the area around the pond and the sports track and football pitch. It seems weird writing this, but get inside and see for yourself. The walk outside the campus is also fine, with the small art district not too far away.

To get in: Need a WeChat account to register, they only allow 1000 Visitors per day. Will need a Chinese friend to help with registration, since it is also in Chinese and sells out quickly. Need to book a few days in advance. GL

The university is in the center. You can enter only by permission so not everyone can see it. Inside are old and new buildings of the faculties from ancient and modern times. The structure of this university is really great. By the main entrance you can find some other attractions to see so dont miss them.

We were surprised by how spacious and pretty the campus was for this prestigious university. Doesn’t need to take a big chunk of time to walk through the main parts. Worth doing if you’re in that part of the city.

Don't go without an escort or someone to call security for you. Outstanding university, beautiful campus, but access is strictly enforced.
