The NCKU Art Center

The NCKU Art Center is a first-level administrative office of the National Cheng Kung University (Tainan, Taiwan)

Founded in 1999, the Center was originally created to encourage a campus life that embraces the arts so as to broaden horizons of members of the public as well as the University’s staff and students.


The NCKU Museum

The NCKU Museum was established to promote the good traditions of the University, preserve significant historical and cultural artifacts, provide services to present research achievements of faculty members and students, and foster cultural education for the public, with the aim of developing NCKU campuses into a wall-less cultural center of the community.



The learning commons of the NCKU Library (named it “KnowLEDGE”) is a “new place for learning”, located on the first and second floor of the Dormitory No.3 of the University’s Ching-Yeh Campus. As a campus hub for student-centered learning activities, this venue is a shared or common space in which NCKU students, teachers and others can come together to interact, and participate in various kinds of learning activities held there.

NCKU library

National Cheng Kung University was established in January, 1931, the NCKU library was also established.In early 1984, the library opened a branch in the College of Medicine. With the increase of the material in the library, the capacity in the main library was far from enough. Therefore, in June 2001, a newly established library was opened providing all kinds of technology and various professional services.


The Magic School of Green Technolges

This beautiful green building of fantasy was built based on the experimental research by a team of 3 topnotch professors and 12 graduate students led by professor Hsein-Teh Lin of NCKU. After a year of field tests, it was proven that the annual EUI of the “Magic School of Green Technologies” is 43kWh/(m2.yr) and the percentage of energy saved is 65% (compared to 125kWh/(m2.yr), the annul EUI of office buildings of the same scale). It is the greenest building in the world. NCKU took another step toward the ideal of “zero carbon” by offering 4.7 hectares of green areas inside the campus to create a subtropical rainforest, which can deal with 71.3 tons of emitted CO2. As a result, the “Magic School of Green Technologies” has become a real “zero carbon green building”.

The “Magic School of Green Technologies” is also the first subtropical green education center. In 2015, the “Green Godfather” Yudelson, a famous architectural critic, rated the School as the greenest building in the world, with a score higher than the Apple building.
