I studied at BLCU last fall so I got a chance to look at the dorms and I wasnt very impressed, altough they opened up two new much better (and more expensive) dormbuildings I still recommend ppl NOT to stay at the dorms.

Why ?

- They're more expensive than to rent an apartment nearby

- They have a much lower standard than equally expensive apartments

- You are much more free to come/go as you like and bring friends (of both sexes which can be a bit tricky in some of the dorms)

contra - on the other hand it takes some work, finding a real estate agent and looking at apartments, that took me 1 week tops but I had someone helping me.

And if u pay the landlord all the money at once your much more likely to get a lower rent, dont forget to bargain !! and look at several apartments so you can lower the price by comparing them.

I ended up sharing a 150sqm apartment in hua-qing-jia-yuan, 5-10 min walk from school right beside the wudaokou light rail, perfect spot.. resturatns, communication night clubs, gym etc...

I was in No.4 when I studied there. It was two years ago now. Think I paid IS$7.50 a night to share a fairly small room (though not as small as the international center rooms).

There were quite a few cockroaches but no big ones, but the main problem was mosquitoes - couldn't stop them coming in. Maybe the dorms are OK for the winter but I found them rather uncomfortable from about this time of year.......

Aloha - Beijing is quite safe, and there are just too many people around in Wudaokou to be a victim of any type of attack (except poss middle of the night)

I took a look at the dorms at the BLCU and decided it wasn't worth the money. Flats near the university are pretty easy to find. A lot of the long term students are away for the summer and like to sublet their apartments. Why don't you check out :


Good luck
