Hand-painted map shows cultural side of XJTLU campus

01 Jul 2016

A new hand-painted map of the Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University campus has been released, including the soon-to-open South Campus.

"Hand-painted XJTLU" was first created in October 2014 to help teachers and students familiarise themselves with the campus. In May 2015 an enhanced second edition was released and made available in the XJTLU Museum and academic departments as a special souvenir gift for external visitors.

This third edition of the map, released for the University's 10th Anniversary celebrations, is a carefully-painted depiction of the North and South campuses. The map shows the main roads around the campus, the student dormitories and public facilities, as well as all the buildings of XJTLU. The 'cultural spaces' listed on the reverse of the map have been expanded to 26 from the original 12 to include sites on the South Campus. These cultural spaces include the Liverpool Room, which features a football shirt signed by Liverpool FC players, and the biological science history corridor, which shows the development of biology over the past 250 years, amongst many others.

Copies of the map can be found in the XJTLU Museum, on the first floor of the Central Building.
