Campus Life

PKU Shenzhen has world-class facilities that meet the various life needs for the thousands of students and staff of the university. From Olympic-size swimming pools to modern dim-sum, we have everything you need to live a quality life on campus.

As part of the University Town of Shenzhen, we have the benefit of having both small-scale facilities to meet our own needs and access to shared large-scale facilities, used in partnership with all the universities of UTSZ and the general Shenzhen public.

Our campus is full of food to meet the needs and cravings of our diverse community. There is a wide range of flavors, price points and facilities with high standards for hygiene and food quality to ensure eating remains a daily highlight throughout each member’s time at Nanyan.

Also, as part of the University Town of Shenzhen (UTSZ), all of the UTSZ dining facilities are accessible for PKUSZ students and staff.



There are two canteens, or general cafeterias, on the PKUSZ campus. Canteen 1 is located in dorm Building 1 and Canteen 2 is located in dorm Building 5. Each canteen has two stories of dining options. The canteens serve breakfast, lunch and dinner at routine blocks of time.They focus on a wide variety of Chinese-style dishes.

Only a campus card or the UTSZ WeChat mini-program (linked to an individual’s campus card) can be used to purchase from the canteens. If you are guest to PKU Shenzhen, you should inquire about receiving a guest card for the UTSZ canteens.


Restaurants and cafes on campus are located in both living and academic building areas. WeChat Pay, AliPay and cash can be used for purchases at the restaurants and cafes and most accept campus card and UTSZ mini-program payments as well.

There are international food options, including global chains, as well as restaurants specializing in local cuisine.

Athletics have been atthe very center of the University Town of Shenzhen and PKU since the very beginning when UTSZ was a hosting site for the world’s largestWorld University Games in 2011.

We are fortunate to have small-scale athletic facilities within our own PKUSZ buildings and large-scale facilities shared between the other universities in UTSZ.

Each year, we hold the PKUSZ Sports Meet and the PHBS Sports Meet. We also have teams compete in the annual UTSZ Comprehensive Sports Competition. A select group of students, including international students, also travel to the main campus of PKU in Beijing in early May to compete in the Annual PKU Sports Competition. There are also less formal competitions in individual sports, like swimming, football, tennis and basketball.

Apart from the competitions, students have the chance to enroll in General Education courses and receive training from our coaches in a wide-range of sports. They can also join one of the many student groups targeting specificactivities.
