    Campus Facilities

    Library

    GDUFS Library was set up in June 1995 with the merging of the then existing Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Languages Library and the Guangzhou Institute of Foreign Trade Library. The total floor space of the library is 22,000 square meters on the north campus and 28,000 square meters on the south campus. The library has open-shelf stack rooms with an area of 16,000 square meters for lending and reading and a multi-purpose auditorium equipped with 450 seats, projection and audio systems.

    The Library has a collection of 1.23 million volumes, with 820,000 books in Chinese, 240,000 in English, 130,000 in other foreign languages and 12,000 items of other types of material in 12 different languages. There are 55 English periodicals, 44 Chinese periodicals and more than 500 electronic books either in Chinese or English.

    In recent years, the library has been developing its electronic information resources, in particular its overseas network database. The library provides high-level information services based on the network such as conveyance of original literatures, on-line consultation, and on-line audio-visual services.

    Readers can enjoy a number of services besides borrowing and reading books and journals. For example, library users can search for information on the library network database, copy materials and ask for the original literature service. In addition, readers can also receive training and other media services. The library has 4,648 seats in its reading room, and 540 seats in the computer room. The 240-seat study room in the basement is open 24 hours a day. The library is currently striving to create an academic information service system featuring flexible services and advanced management and application of information technology.

    The library is open from 8 am – 10 pm at night, and during vacations from 8 am – 5 pm. Students of Chinese may use the library if they study for a period of two or more months, but as yet may not borrow books.

    Recreation Facilities

    Outside the dormitories, there is a decent-sized swimming pool, inexpensive tennis courts, volleyball courts, a football pitch, and a gym costing very little to use. The campus also has a bar and karaoke for evening entertainment. Every month, international students in the Chinese Department can take part social activities such as outings to famous sights in and around Guangzhou.

    Laundry

    Near the campus there are many dry cleaning and other service facilities.

    Money & Banking

    The nearest branch of the Bank of China is just at the gates of the campus, and there are many other banks nearby offering international money transfer, currency exchange and other services for international students.

    Medical Care

    The campus hospital is the first port of call for common medical complaints. Other nearby hospitals include Zhongshan Medical University's own hospital and Southern Medical University's own hospital.

    Food & Groceries

    Although the campus doesn't have any western restaurants, within five minutes walk you can reach North Street where there are many restaurants to suit all tastes, plus supermarkets and other shopping facilities.

    Postal Services

    A post office is available at the south entrance to the university. Students can send and receive mail and parcels from all around the world at the post office, which also offers envelopes, stamp and post boxes.
