Located on the hillside of Qilian, northwest of the Taipei Basin, we enjoy a beautiful landscape with plenty of plants and trees; this results in a tranquil environment and peaceful atmosphere. When the night falls, we can see the lights in Taipei and the stars in the sky clearly from here.
As we are located on a slope, a shuttle bus runs regularly between our school, VGH and Shipai MRT Station for the convenience of faculty and students. For local transportation, you can take the Danshui Line of Taipei MRT or city buses (more than 10 routes) to and from our school.(Bus Timetable)

57 University Houses, offering comfortable accommodation for international scholars so that they can concentrate on their research and teaching. Furthermore, there are a series of student dormitory consisting of four male student dormitories, two female student dormitories, and one graduate student dormitory providing a total of 1,600 beds. Each room is equipped with nice facilities and accommodates two to four people. The female student dormitories have door control systems and are regularly patrolled by the University security guards for safety. A new graduate student dormitory is on Qian Street and when completed, it will help by providing 38 graduate student rooms and 4 apartments. This will increase significantly the graduate student on-campus accommodation and offer them a quality living environment.
