The University has two campuses—the South Lake Campus and the Shouyi Campus, with the former being located beside the beautiful South Lake and the latter near the famous historical site of Wuhan City, the Yellow Crane Tower.

(1) Solid Historical Foundation

The Institution’s predecessor, Zhongyuan University, was founded by the Zhongyuan Bureau of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China with Deng Xiaoping as the first secretary and the second secretary Chen Yi as the director of the Preparatory Committee. In 1953, during the restructuring of national institutions of higher education, Zhongnan Institute of Finance and Economics and Zhongnan Institute of Politics and Law were founded respectively, based on the Institute of Finance and Economics and Institute of Politics and Law of Zhongyuan University, integrating programmes of economics and management and Departments of Politics and Law of Sun Yat-Sen University, Jinan University, Guangxi University, Hunan University, Henan University etc in the six provinces of Central South China. In 1958, Zhongnan Institute of Finance and Economics, Zhongnan Institute of Politics and Law, Zhongnan Political Cadres’ Training School and Department of Law of Wuhan University were combined into Hubei University. In 1971 Hubei University was renamed as Hubei Vocational School of Finance and Economics.

In Jan.1978, the above-mentioned school was renamed as Hubei Institute of Finance and Economics with the approval of the Hubei Provincial government and it was included on the list of the first batch of higher education institutions which were authorized to enroll undergraduates and postgraduates nationally. In January of 1979, with the approval of the State Council, Hubei Institute of Finance and Economics was placed under the supervision of both the Ministry of Finance and Hubei Province, with the former taking the lead. In December of 1984, based on the Department of Law of Hubei Institute of Finance and Economics, Zhongnan Institute of Politics and Law was restored under the leadership of Ministry of Justice. In September of 1985, Hubei Institute of Finance and Economics was renamed Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics. Deng Xiaoping inscribed the name of the university in person. In February of 2000, after the approval by the State Council of China, Zhongnan University of Finance and Economics and Zhongnan Institute of Politics and Law merged into one-Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, which was officially founded on May 26th of 2000.
