A Place for Learning and Living

Architect’s rendering of the DKU Academic Center

Duke Kunshan University’s state-of-the-art campus is currently under construction in the Kunshan Yangcheng Lake Science Park.  Five buildings including an academic center, conference center, and housing for students and faculty members, are scheduled for completion in 2014.

The campus blends traditional Chinese elements with advanced educational technology in a spacious, modern setting.  Extensive aquatic elements, including an aquatic quadrangle at the center of campus, symbolize the region’s famous water towns and are integrated throughout the campus, while leading information technology and Telepresence systems provide instant connections to colleagues and classmates around the world.

Kunshan’s location between Shanghai and Suzhou allows easy access to these major metropolitan centers by high speed train.

Long-term plans call for a significant expansion of the university’s facilities to accommodate growth in programs and enrollment.
