Our Library and Information Building is the landmark of the university. Growing eight floors high with over one million books and an audio-visual center which boats the most updated, high-tech AV equipment, students who come to study here can be sure of a modern and professional learning environment.

When it comes to athletics and sports, our state-of-the-art gymnasium is one of the most expensive constructions in southern Taiwan with two Olympic-sized swimming pools, a roller-skating rink, indoor rock climbing walls, sports courts for basketball, volleyball and badminton being just some of the facilities available for students and faculty to enjoy. Not forgetting the 20 fairway golf-course either!

Our student support system means that international students who come to study at Chung Cheng University are paired up with a local learning partner to help them adjust to studying abroad life. It’s also a great way to get to know the local culture and people.

Students at Cheng Chung University have the choice to live both on or off-campus. The university has five student halls available for undergraduate students, and are designed to make students feel as at home as possible. There are laundromats available, as well as music rooms, computer rooms, and entertainment rooms. There are also reading rooms which offers students the private space to read and make friends with students from other countries. For postgraduate students there are five European-styled buildings that have been converted to dormitories, allowing you to study and live in a peaceful setting.

For students who live off-campus, we liaise with private landlords to ensure students and landlords are able to build a positive rapport. The Division of Student Affairs assesses lodging conditions in private student properties on a regular basis and ensures that regular appointments between the university faculty and students who live in private accommodation is done regularly.
