We went to register my place of residence with the local Public Security Bureau, so i took some pics on the way. The Campus is massive - the pics (found below) are just a small part of it.
Afterwards we went to one of the canteens for lunch.

The canteen opening times are;
  • 0700 - 0800
  • 1100 - 1300
  • 1630 - 1830

Later Zhao and I also went out for dinner, This is the where we ate noodles.
I don't remember the price of the noodles - I will try and give you some pricing info another day.
  • A small bottle of water cost 1 yuan
    • written either; 1¥ or 1元 
    • which is about 10p
