February 03, 2021      Author: Liu Ying

About 2,000 students of Shanghai Jiao Tong University chose to stay on the campus during this winter holiday, nearly 10 times the number of previous years, and most of them are postgraduates. Some students would not return home because their hometown are in areas with medium and high COVID-19 infection risks, and others chose to stay for research and academic considerations. During the vacation, the laboratories and libraries of the university will open as usual for students to study and research. Other services such as canteen, security guard, medical care, school buses and sports venues will also operate normally to facilitate the daily life of the students. The university will adopt a series of heart-warming measures to make sure that students spend a happy and safe winter vacation at school.
