student dormitories "Dahongying University" - Gaoqiao, Ningbo, Zhejiang, China

these are the first year student dorms' the girls dorms opposite my apartment building - in all the schools (read Universities) that I have taught at in my five + years in China, all the dorm buildings are the same (not just similar, but exactly the same) which isn't unusual for China. They are six level (seven levels and a building must have an elevator) concrete buildings with a balcony for each dorm room (which is used to hang washing) the buildings are tiled on the exterior walls and have neither heating nor cooling, no hot water and no cooking facilities
