The University of Chinese Academy of Sciences(UCAS) has no boundaries, because it integrates with over a hundred CAS-affliated research institutes across the nation.

Based on the operating mechanism of “co-ownership, co-governance, sharing and mutual development” between UCAS and CAS institutes, UCAS has become a “large campus”, which includes four campuses in Beijing, (Yuquanlu, Zhongguancun, the Olympic Village and Yanqi Lake), five education bases (Shanghai, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Chengdu and Lanzhou) and 114 research institutes across the country. 


The campus on Yuquan Road, the registration location, is small yet quaint. Against the lush lawn, the auditorium facing the school gate is full of the atmosphere of history. The Yuquanlu Campus is also the only campus along Chang'an Avenue inside the fifth Ring Road. It adjoins the Institute of High Energy Physics and the National Laboratory of Beijing Electron--Positron Collider (BEPC).

The Zhongguancun Campus is located in the China’s Silicon Valley and the Olympic Village Campus is adjacent to the Beijing National Stadium(The Bird’s Nest), which is one of the main venues of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Both of these two campuses are featured by the stimulating environment for technological innovation and entrepreneurship. 

Located at the foot of the Luotuo Mountain in Huairou District, the Yanqi Lake Campus adjoins Yanqi Lake in the south and the Ming Great Wall in the north, covering an area of 3.12 million square meters and a building area of 360,000 square meters. The campus came into use in September 2015. As a poem goes “the needles of pine trees remain lush despite of the bitter weather, the lake is large and clear”, this is an ideal place where future scientists could follow their heart and commit themselves into learning. The place used to be the major base for the development of “two bombs and one satellite” in the 1960s. The Memorial Museum of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and “Two Bombs and One Satellite” rebuilt from the Huairou Rocket Test Base is situated among the evergreen pines and cypress trees on the campus.
