Xianlin University City (Chinese: 仙林大学城; pinyin: Xiān lín dàxué chéng) is an area in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, China with a number of universities.[1] It is near Purple Mountain.

History[edit]

The university city was an undeveloped, rural property in 1989, and multi-storied buildings were built there as the city grew. In 2001 the area was named Xianlin University City.[2]

In November 2011, an Undergraduate Education Teach Council was established by Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing University, Nanjing University of Finance and Economics, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, and Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. The council was created to promote modern higher education practices to attract international university students and keep pace with new trends in education.[3]

A College of Geography Science, Nanjing Normal University study was conducted in 2011 to evaluate different aeration methods for removing high levels of nitrogen from a heavily polluted river in the Xianlin University Town.[4]

The “Xianlin Science City Development Consortium” was formed by 12 universities on February 25, 2012 to cooperate on research, sharing resources, event planning and the development of a "science city", with each university having its own science facilities.[5]

Vice major of Nanjing, Lu Bing, is responsible for the oversight of the Management Committee of Xianlin University City as of 2014.[6]

The area around the Xianhe East States was planned as a scenic residential community. The Nanjing University is also a housing zone. Nanjing Sports Institute and Nanjing Normal University Station are commercial and business centres.[12] University and college graduates then become a pool of potential employees and researchers for the city's employers, such as organizations located within the Nanjing Economic and Technological Development Zone.[13]
