Over a third of the site of residential colleges is covered by green landscaping elements, including vertical plantings and rooftop gardens. Bamboo is a primary element in the landscape design and widely used in Residential Colleges, including furniture, curtains, decoration, and wall panels,etc. The growth cycle of bamboo is faster than that of trees with more beneficial impact on the ecological environment. A bamboo specimen garden is designed and opens for students and the college community.
