The campus of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in the Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone in Hefei, East China's Anhui province, recently welcomed its first group of more than 1,600 students for the upcoming fall semester.

The new campus is still under construction but will be ready before the semester begins. Student apartments and the canteen have already been put into use. Facilities such as the stadium, the gymnasium, the book education center, and the teacher-student activity center will be ready in early September.

After completion, the campus will become the largest campus of USTC. With a focus on quantum sciences, the campus will support USTC's efforts to become a world-class university and promote innovations for the development of the Hefei high-tech zone, which is considered Anhui's high tech hub and dubbed the "Quantum Center".
