SJTU campus

The suburban campus of SJTU combines features of an urban and rural campus. It is located outside the big city, which allows you to focus on your studies. However, it is also not too far, opening up access to more types of recreation, both outdoors and in the city (theaters, museums, restaurants). During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. Not only locals study at SJTU, but also students from other countries. This is a unique opportunity to get in touch with the culture of other countries, meet representatives of different nationalities and make friends around the world.
