Our campus is located in Suzhou Industrial Park, to the east of Suzhou’s historic centre.

Suzhou is only 24 minutes due west from Shanghai on the fastest high-speed train. The University's nearest train station is the high-speed Suzhou Industrial Park station 苏州园区站 although Suzhou 苏州站 and Suzhou North 苏州北站 train stations have more regular services from other cities around China. You can easily get a taxi from these train stations to our campus. Information in English about train times, and how to purchase tickets, can be found on the Ctrip website.

Getting here by taxi

Taxis in Suzhou are plentiful, relatively cheap and represent the easiest way to get to our campus from most of the transport hubs in Suzhou (fare will be somewhere in the region of RMB 50-100). You can show the taxi driver the following text to make getting here simple:

请带我去西交利物浦大学仁爱路111号。

Urban taxis are always metered. When you take a taxi in a city, make sure the driver starts the meter when you get in and that it has reset to zero.
