Life at Tsinghua

Medical and Health Care

Due to the lower level of health care available in China, the current state of medical facilities in Beijing, and the long distance of Tsinghua from Western-managed clinics and hospitals (all located on the other side of Beijing), IUP strongly recommends that any students with a pre-existing medical condition consult with their physician to see if their condition would be worsened by living in Beijing.

Beijing has severe air pollution, extremely dry air and dust storms in winter and spring, and several infectious diseases (e.g. TB and hepatitis) that are prevalent. Asthma sufferers and those with other respiratory aliments will find living in Beijing very challenging.
