Student services

UIC provides a Chinese culture and society education programme and various academic activities to help students learn the development of China's politics, economy, society and culture. Students and staff can experience the glamour of Chinese traditional culture through courses offered by the Chinese Language and Culture Centre and the Whole Person Education Office. Topics include Chinese philosophy, guqin (an ancient Chinese zither), shedao (Chinese archery), Yayue (literally elegant music or court music) and ceramics. In addition, the Research Institute for Dissemination of Chinese Culture is also contributing to the promotion of Chinese culture.

Housing services

All students are required to live in the student hostels. The student hostels are formed into eight halls. These halls are not only a place of residence, but also a well-designed part of the Whole Person Education environment.UIC promotes “hall culture” with an emphasis on the communication and interaction between students and teachers. Wardens and resident tutors live with students in the halls to provide positive influence and guidance. Residents organise inter-hall activities and form an active, harmonious community.

Library services

The Learning Resource Centre at UIC is amongst the Guangdong universities owning the most English readings. It has a print collection of approximately 330,000 volumes and subscribes to over 300 English and Chinese periodicals as well as about 74 foreign and Chinese language databases. In addition, the Inter-Library Loan service allows staff and students to reach resources from libraries elsewhere.

Student Life

Campus life

UIC’s new campus is located on 2000 Jintong Road, Tangjiawan, Zhuhai, Guangdong Province. It is linked with Jinfeng Road via Jintong Road and Jintang West Road.

The nearest bus stop to the new campus is Huitong Gongyequ, about 100 metres away from the Hui Xian Village of students’ residential area. You can take bus No. 67 from Jinding Shichang bus stop to Huitong Gongyequ.

If you drive from Gangwan Avenue, Fenghuangshan Tunnel or Tangjiawan Railway Station, you need to turn to the direction of Jintang West Road and then Jintong Road before arriving at the new campus.

Sports facilities

One of the most impressive buildings at the new UIC Jintong road campus is the enormous gymnasium. This gymnasium, referred to as the Sports Complex, is a huge step up from what was offered in terms of sports equipment at the old campus on Jinfeng road. Many students enrolled in various Whole Person Education (WPE) courses, from golfing to yoga to swimming, have already had the chance to use this top notch facility, with the gymnasium primarily functioning as an active classroom for students.

Student clubs

Students are encouraged to develop their interests and hobbies in 80 interest clubs and groups related to academics, arts and culture, sports and outdoor activities, voluntary services and social enterprises. The Student Union and all the student clubs organise a variety of activities which enrich students’ campus life and enable them to learn from each other, work in teams and experience what it is to be part of an organisation.
