A vast range of cultural, educational, athletic and social activities are available to Hefei Institutes of Physical Science students, faculty and staff. Getting involved in campus life is the quickest way to become a part of the University community, and to create one's own CASHIPS experience. Campus life activities are built around the concepts of encouraging each community member to express his or her talents and to respect all members of our pluralistic community.
One of the CASHIPS's most distinctive characteristics is its closely knit and integrated residential community. Housing is guaranteed for nearly all students live on campus. The residential experience is central to CASHIPS's educational program, and the residential colleges offer students a supportive and enriching environment full of opportunities for personal growth.
