Located by the coast of beautiful South Lake in Wuhan, China's central metropolis, SCUN boasts a campus of 1754 mu with a construction area of some 1 million square meters. The library has a collection of 2.8 million volumes of books. The Ethnographic Museum on the campus is the first of its kind in universities in China. The modern buildings with ethnic styles lie in the shades of green trees and beautiful flowers all the year round. With a serene environment, especially a view of a mirror-like lake and green hills, and the fragrance of osmanthus flowers all over, the university is an ideal place for study, research and living.
