Student services

Beijing Normal University (BNU) is a comprehensive research university that is directly under the administration of the Ministry of Education of China, with a long history and profound cultural heritage. Beijing Normal University ranks among the top universities in China in terms of its comprehensive strength. It is a key university in the Chinese “Project 985” and “Project 211” and is one of the first “Double First-Class” 

Housing services

Student apartments fully implement property management, with the philosophy that “management educates people, environment educates people, and services educate people.” Freshmen have the option to bring their own bedding, or take the bedding provided by the dormitory management center. 

Moreover, laundries with both large and small size machines are set up to provide cleaning services for students. Dormitories are equipped with TV, telephone, electric fan, and other functional furniture. Broadband communication is available in each dormitory. The reception hall, clean and elegant, is provided with desks and chairs and also a newspaper stand.  

Library services

On behalf of the Beijing Normal University Library, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to BNU students, faculty members and staffs. We in the Library are here to provide you with diverse resources and services to support your academic and personal goals.  

Medical services

When away from home, University students have to learn to take care of themselves. If they become ill, they need to go to a medical care facility for timely treatment. The BNU hospital is located on campus, so that students may be treated in time. At the hospital one needs first register with his or her student card.  

Campus life

The main campus (North Taipingzhuang Campus) of Beijing Normal University covers 172.64 acres that serve as an important place for the university to carry out educational activities. The school has 22,000 full-time students, including 8,900 undergraduates, 11,300 graduates and 1,800 long-term international students. The campus has 1 education faculty, 22 schools and colleges, 2 departments and 36 research institutes (centers). The library boasts over 4.1 million volumes and some 17,300 GB of digital resources, with 1,400 GB e-books.  

Sports facilities

In college life, even though study is the primarily important thing, regular exercise is as equally important as our study. A healthy body is a prerequisite for all else. Students need to do appropriate relaxation after a period of intense study, since exercise can help relieve stress and enhance physical fitness. There are many sports facilities at BNU, including Qiu Jiduan Stadium, the east and west playgrounds, a volleyball court, a tennis court, a handball court, a table-tennis room, and an old stadium.
