This campus has a five-story library; an audio-visual education center, which includes a television studio, a language laboratory, and a multimedia classroom; the Shanghai Collegiate Internship Center for International Business, the first web-based simulation center for the training of foreign economic relations and trade personnel in China; a multimedia language training center; an up-to-date computer center; as well as a guest house for foreign experts, an international student dormitory, a gymnasium and an indoor swimming pool.  The Songjiang campus is a first-class modern university campus covering approximately 115 acres.  This campus has a library, a language center, a business internship center, a computer center, an internet center, a multimedia education software design center, as well as conference halls, a stadium, a floodlit basketball court, and a gymnasium/fitness center.
