Under Zijin Mountain, beside Xuanwu Lake, this is the Zijin Campus of Nanjing Normal University, covering an area of 110,000 square meters, with a floor area of about 80,000 square meters. The campus has a good landscape and ecological environment.

"No.78 Bancang Street", where the humanities and the campus atmosphere overlap, leaving behind campus memories of many people, cultural link between the university and Nanjing city, forming an intellectual and innovative college atmosphere.

In July 2019, the Zijin Campus of Nanjing Normal University with a long history ended its mission as a university campus.

The government and enterprises are also actively exploring how to transform existing land functions and integrate it with the new urban economy through renewal and regeneration.
