Brief Introduction of Wuhan Campus，Yangtze University
Wuhancampus is located at the Caidian district,WuhanCity, near the Zhiyin lake, with remarkably convenient transportation advantages. It is about 40 minutes ride from this campus to the Tianhe international airport, Hankou railway station, or the Wuchang railway station. With excellent ecological environment, it is embraced on three sides by clear water and overlooked by green mountains. As a new development platform, the advancement ofWuhancampus is a new growth pole ofYangtzeUniversity. Moreover, it is a high-level research and development center, where first-level talents and academic teams have been employed to refine the platform. It is hoped the campus will become an important training base with comparative advantages, characteristic disciplines, and professional talents forYangtzeUniversity.
