Peking University has been gracious enough to host the NDiB (Notre Dame in Beijing) students in its international student dorm complex, known as PKU Global Village. In my opinion, the accommodations were very nice (even better than some Notre Dame dorms) and it was very convenient to walk from the dorms to our classroom building. I took the first picture from a pedestrian overpass that connects Global Village to the main campus. And, as you can see, the skies are sometimes blue! The Global Village includes a few convenience stores, some restaurants, and even an underground gym.
