The Center is designed to facilitate research and teaching in China for Stanford faculty and students. SCPKU has created a productive work environment in a quiet academic setting that may serve as an office for scholars or a home base for field research elsewhere in China. The proximity of Chinese scholars at PKU and nearby Tsinghua University and Renmin University can provide new opportunities for convenient academic dialogue and collaboration.
Individual offices and workspaces can be reserved for long- or short-term visits. Spacious rooms are available for collaborative programs and permanent, multi-year programs may re-configure larger offices to match their needs. Offices have standard business amenities and access to services including Internet access, fax and copy machines, and mailboxes.
SCPKU offers a unique venue in an academic and scenic setting for Stanford-sponsored events. There are flexible and configurable spaces on all three levels that can accommodate classes, seminars, lectures, meetings, receptions and conferences.

SCPKU's bilingual staff is available to assist with important logistical needs and to ensure that your SCPKU experience is productive and enjoyable, even for those who don't speak Chinese. See Services for more information.
As of December 2016, SCPKU has installed a comprehensive fresh air ventilation system to cleanse its 2400 square meter underground space. Air purifiers have also been placed in all offices on the Courtyard Level. The level of fine particulate matter (PM 2.5), an air pollutant that can penetrate into the lungs and blood stream unfiltered, is being closely monitored in the Center. Since the system has been activated, air quality at SCPKU has drastically improved. The Center’s PM 2.5 level is now kept within Beijing’s Air Quality Index (AQI) parameters of "Good" and "Moderate" (between 0 and 100 µg/m3) even when the outside air is “Very Unhealthy" or “Hazardous.”
