The campus comprises new studios for teaching Fashion Design and Graphic Arts, two Mac suites, Digital Printing rooms, Photographic Studios, Libraries, Lecture Theatres and a Cafe.

Dalian Polytechnic University was founded in 1958.

Spread over a beautiful 85 acres, the campus boasts wonderful green spaces in conjunction with industry standard buildings and equipment.

Dalian itself is a major seaport in the south of the Liaoning province, Northeast China, and is the second largest city in Liaoning province next only to the capital Shenyang. Its city centre is a thriving hive of activity that hosts city-wide festivals, sports and a stadium and a large financial district that has seen the rise of skyscrapers. All of this is easily reachable from the campus due to the excellent public transport network.
