Campus[edit]

This photo is in the XianLin campus. The large spherical building is the library. There are many small man-made lakes on campus, such as the one pictured here.

These are some of the buildings where classes are held at the XianLin campus. They are commonly referred to as the "Z Buildings" because they are called Z1, Z2, Z3, and Z4. "Z" stands for "Zhuan ye" -- which means "Special Field of Study".

Nanjing University of Finance & Economics has three campuses. One on Fujian Road in the city center, one at the new university city (Yadong District) 15 km outside Nanjing called XianLin, and a small campus approximately 40 km away from the Nanjing city center in a village called QiaoTou. The university was founded in 2000 by the combination of three universities. A variety of majors/disciplines are available for study. Like at other universities in China, English study is compulsory.

History[edit]

The university has evolved from a grain school which was subordinated to the Ministry of Grains in 1956 to many iterations of provincial and national grain schools. It wasn't until 2003, the university became the current Nanjing University of Finance and Economics.[2]
