Shirly is an ECNUer from Department of Education who shared her opinion on Zhixian Hall. "Zhixian Hall not only offers a comfortable reading environment but it can accommodate both socializing and studying needs for ECNUers," she said. "There is nothing like walking into the 'Zhixian Hall', seeing the 8-meter tall bookcase that looks like a waterfall, and instantly feeling my productive levels surge through the roof. It puts me in a state of mind to get my assignments done immediately."

Located inside the Zhixian Hall, the ‘Zhaowen Room’ is the first immersive space for learning and innovation which is open 24/7 in ECNU. Equipped with computers, high speed internet connection, sound systems and more, it is one of the best places for ECNUers to engage in innovation, entrepreneurship and scientific research collaboration.
