“Our university is the best normal university (teachers’ university) in Zhejiang province, the campus is very green and very poetic sitting just beside the Jianfeng Mountain. Our campus is one of the most famous attraction site in the city of Jinhua. Jinhua is not a big city, and there is less population, not really a traffic jam and the air quality is very good because of the mountains and high coverage of greenery. The campus, cloaked with green trees everywhere, is really a poetic place for studying and living.

The campus is about 10 mins drive from the Jinhua Station, where you can take a bullet train to Hangzhou in 56 minutes and to Shanghai in 2 hours and 10 minutes. Near the campus there are shops and restaurants. Working at ZJNU, you don’t see many foreigners, but you can pick up Chinese quickly while being fully immersed in the beautiful environment. Jinhua people are very friendly to foreigners and they don’t usually see foreigners, don’t be surprised if you are popular on and off campus. If you are looking for a working place really close to the nature, you are more than welcome to join us and hopefully you will enjoy working in our scenic campus as much as we do!”


A private two-bedroom apartment is provided for each foreign expert. The apartment includes wooden flooring and is all furnished, with sofa, AC, desk, dining table etc.
