The Communication University of China (CUC; Chinese: 中国传媒大学) is a public university in Beijing, China. It is affiliated with the Ministry of Education. The university is part of the Double First-Class Construction and Project 211.

CUC developed from what used to be a training center for technicians of the Central Broadcasting Bureau that was founded in 1954. In April 1959, it was upgraded to the Beijing Broadcasting College (Chinese: 北京广播学院; pinyin: Běijīng Guǎngbō Xuéyuàn) approved by the State Council. In August 2004, the Beijing Broadcasting College was renamed the Communication University of China. CUC is located in the eastern part of Beijing near the ancient canal, which occupies 463,700 square meters of land and a total of 499,800 square meters of buildings.[1]


CUC's history dates back to March 3, 1954, when the first training class for broadcasting professionals was held by the then Central Radio Administration. This then led to the founding of Beijing Broadcasting College in 1958. On September 7, 1959, CUC's precursor Beijing Broadcasting Institute (BBI) was established.[2][better source needed]

Communication University of China has co-established three Confucius Institutes for providing Chinese language and cultural education for learners outside of China.[citation needed]
