The exclusive XJTLU campus is dedicated to learning, teaching and research. It covers an area approximately 407,000 m². There are three main sections; the North Campus (160,000 m²), South Campus 1 (153,000 m²), and South Campus 2 (94,000 m²). The Administration Centre of XJTLU will be situated in the North Campus.
