Facilities and Services
The Center is designed to facilitate research and teaching in China for Stanford faculty and students. SCPKU has created a productive work environment in a quiet academic setting that may serve as an office for scholars or a home base for field research elsewhere in China. The proximity of Chinese scholars at PKU and nearby Tsinghua University and Renmin University can provide new opportunities for convenient academic dialogue and collaboration.

Spacious rooms are available for collaborative programs and permanent, multi-year programs may re-configure larger offices to match their needs. Offices have standard business amenities and access to services including Internet access, fax and copy machines, and mailboxes.
