On-campus Accommodation

The Zijing International Student Apartments of Tsinghua University provide three types of dormitory rooms to the international students: single room (private bedroom and bathroom), RMB 80/day; AB room (private bedroom, shared bathroom), RMB 80/day/person; double room (two beds in one room, shared bathroom on each floor), RMB 40/day/person. Included in each room are bedclothes, central air conditioning, Internet access and furniture.

The apartments have a capacity of accommodating around 2000 international students. For more details of the apartments, please visit Zijing International Student Apartments. 

The General Reception Desk of Zijing International Student Apartments is in Zijing Apartment Building No. 19. It serves from 7:00 am to 23:00 pm. The service phone number: +86-10-5153 5501; Email: gaopei@tsinghua.edu.cn.

Because the number of on-campus apartment rooms is limited and can not meet the demands of all students to live on campus, the new students who have received the Admission Notice of Tsinghua University need to book the rooms in advance, following the date, time and procedure specified in the Instructions of International Students Dormitory Application System of Tsinghua University which is sent out with the admission package.

Off-campus Accommodation

If you do not successfully book a room in the on-campus apartments, you need to arrange off-campus accommodation in advance. We are sorry that currently the University is not able to officially recommend off-campus housing information and housing agencies for your off-campus accommodation.

According to the experiences of our international students, many of them prefer to live in the apartments near the campus, such as Huaqing Jiayuan and Dongsheng Yuan, etc. Some students choose to live far from the campus, because the rents might be much lower.

You may need to ask some help from your Chinese Buddy or friends in Beijing. Please be careful when signing the contract or lease, since there may be hidden clauses.

When you live off campus, never forget to get a Registration Form of Temporary Residence issued by the local police station of your accommodation. Within 24 hours after you move in, please bring your passport and go to the local police station together with your landlord (or other authorized agency).

The Registration Form of Temporary Residence is another important certificate for your legal stay in China, aside from your passport and visa. Please keep it along with your passport. It is required for your application of new visa, visa extension, additional entry or residence permit.

Therefore, a special reminder is that before you sign for the contract or pay for the rental, do confirm that the owner of the apartment/house property is able to process the accommodation registration for you. Otherwise you will get into trouble of illegal stay.
