Stop 1: University Name Stones
The first stop is the University Name Stones. Our campus presents an open view, so when you see stones with "Beijing Normal University," there you are at the gate of our university!
Stop 2: Liyun Building
The word "Liyun" is taken after the name of the study room of Mr. Chen Yuan, the former president of Beijing Normal University and a famous historian and bibliographer — "Liyun Study." "Liyun" means "working diligently." The Beijing campus of BNU named its buildings and roads after "Liyun," so the Liyun Building of the Zhuhai Campus follows the name of the Beijing campus to express the expectations of president Chen Yuan for BNU students.
Stop 3: Library
The university library has an excellent environment, with a total construction area of 34,000 square meters, a collection of more than 1.1 million Chinese and foreign language paper books, more than 800,000 electronic books, more than 2,000 Chinese and foreign language newspapers and periodicals, 45 Chinese and foreign language databases, 7 printed literature reading rooms, 1 multimedia reading room, 5 seminar rooms, 1 audiovisual seminar room, and 16 leisure academic seminar areas, with 3,500 reading seats. The library provides readers with borrowing, reading, audiovisual, internet access, information retrieval and various technical services, and the computers and audiovisual equipment are all open to readers for free, providing a good environment for academic research and study seminars for teachers and students.

Stop 5: Track-and-Field Playground
The Track-and-Field Playground is an indoor stadium, which is also called "Turtle Shell Stadium" because its outer shape resembles a turtle shell. There are badminton courts, table tennis courts, volleyball courts, basketball courts, and a 300-meter circular track. Daily ball courses are held here, and it is also used for several sports competitions, such as basketball tournaments and badminton tournaments of the Future Education Academy.
Stop 6: Muduo Building
The Analects of Confucius says: "The world has not followed the Way for a long time, and heaven will take masters as a muduo." "Muduo" is a kind of rattle, which can make a sound, and it also says that "Muduo is used to publicize the policy." Confucius used to describe himself as a muduo, saying that he was sent from heaven to educate the people, so as one of the four comprehensive teaching buildings of BNU, it is named after "Muduo," which means educating the people and students. At the same time, "Muduo" is also the symbol of the university's emblem, which displays the characteristics of BNU.
Stop 7: Lize Building and Lize Lake
It is said in the Book of Changes that "Lize, gentlemen discuss with each other." The place for teaching and educating people is called Lize, which cannot be put better. Most of the buildings on Zhuhai campus are named after the roads on the Beijing campus, so the Lize Building corresponds to the Lize Road on the Beijing campus. There is a beautiful lake in front of the building, which is called "Lize Lake," and every morning you can see many students standing by the lake practicing vocalizing and reciting English.
The central lobby at the main entrance leads to the four main sections of the building, with two floors in sections A and B and four floors in sections C and D. There is a vending machine at the lobby for students to buy drinks.
