Upon leaving home, it may be difficult to judge and distinguish between benevolent or malicious influences. By prioritizing safety and wellbeing, dangerous or compromising situations can be avoided altogether. Here are safety tips given by the Tsinghua Security Department to aid your safe journey to Tsinghua campus.
Tip 1 In-transit Safety
1.Fasten your seatbelt on cars, trains, planes and other transportation. Keep track of your personal belongings, tickets and papers when transferring. Carry valuables on your person for safekeeping.
2.Traveling to school alone by car is not recommended. If you must drive, it is recommended to have extensive driving experience and avoid fatigued driving. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol will not be tolerated. The school is not responsible for assisting with on-campus vehicle license registration. Motor vehicles are restricted in the student dormitory area.
3.Upon arrival in Beijing, you can take Tsinghua’s welcome bus to school found at the special reception area at the train station where the pick-up personnel and vehicles have Tsinghua welcome signs. Or you may choose to take regular public transportation (such as the subway, bus, taxi, etc.) and keep the ticket safe. Avoid unofficial taxis and other informally operated vehicles.
4.On registration day, the school will implement traffic control by area. All motor vehicles must follow school traffic rules, park in designated areas, drive under the speed limits, and yield to pedestrians and non-motor vehicles.
5.Biking is the most prevalent and convenient way to commute on campus. Ask for receipts when purchasing a bike and find a sturdy lock that will guarantee parking security. No speeding, biking against traffic, or road rage while biking.
6.Please do not purchase an electric scooter or bike. The school does not grant electronic tags for electric vehicles.

Do not circulate or spread pornographic material, gambling practice, drugs, violence, terror, rumors, fraud and other malicious information online.

4.Upon entering your student dorm, organize and store your personal belongings in a timely manner. Valuables should be stowed securely in a locked cabinet or drawer. If a stranger enters your dorm, be especially vigilant and inquisitive, and report to the building manager if necessary. Lock the doors and windows when absent, and do not let other people stay in your dorm.
5.In public areas around the school such as the canteens, sports field, library, and classrooms, do not use your backpack or other belongings to save seats. Your laptop, phone, and other valuables should always be carried on your person to avoid loss or theft.
