Set at Beijing's prestigious Tsinghua University and designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, the 258,000 square-foot Schwarzman College will house one of the most advanced higher-education facilities in the world.
Student residences are organized in groups of 8 private rooms that share a common lounge. These suites will facilitate close relationships among small groups of Scholars who will have a place away from the activity of the College's larger gathering places to socialize and work.
Located in the heart of Beijing, Tsinghua University is one of the most renowned universities in China. The Stephen A. Schwarzman Scholars will live and study on Tsinghua's campus, enjoying access to the university's academic programs and cultural events.
