I had a great experience walking the entire campus, it is full of lovely buildings, fountains, and garden parks. I had a wonderful time playing ping pong outdoors behind the cafeteria with local retirees (warning: they are good). Worth a stop.

Large campus

Lanzhou Jiaotong University has a peaceful campus which offers different corners where you can choose to stay and just relax. There are several buildings organized by areas, as well as some different places for you to eat while walking around there.

A nice, peaceful campus

We enjoyed our stroll through the campus. It is quiet and peaceful. The grounds are well maintained but still have a park-like feel.

The grounds of the grad school are absolutely lovely, another testament to China's superior green thumb and garden design. The campus has trails that lead to what feel like secret study/make-out spots, as well as multiple water features that provide nice relaxing places to read a book or soak up some sun. The cafeterias are pretty bad, though, so I advise walking to any of the numerous restaurants outside campus. And the street venders outside the gates in the morning sling the best breakfast food I had in all of China. 3-6 RMB gets you a nice Chinese pancake loaded with noodles, veggies, etc.

Every Friday night, starting around 7-ish (but busier later in the evening) the university hosts English Quarter at the main fountain. It is actually a city-wide event, promoted by the local government encouraging Chinese students and residents alike to practice their English speaking skills with native English speakers. I definitely recommend going to this if you can, because it provides a truly enriching cultural experience. I had fascinating and engaging conversations with professors, businessmen, government officials, grad students, PhD candidates, researchers, middle schoolers, and local residents, on topics ranging from international relations to Mao and pop culture. It was truly the best experience during my stay in Lanzhou.
