        The University is the first in Taiwan to fully comply with Environmental Impact Assessment standards while completing the development of a mountain slope campus. Begun in 1996, the project involved major changes to the slope, but every effort was made to keep the impact on the natural environment to a minimum during the construction process. Eagles, monkeys, bamboo partridges, raccoons and other fauna can still be spotted on campus right now, especially the nationally protected blue magpie; and the stream has no lack of fish, shrimp and crab. The results of efforts at the time are already evident.

        The view from the campus differs according to the season. In spring and autumn seasonal winds leave the mountain enshrouded by a light cloudy mist, while the sky is clear in summer and one can see Turtle Island and the Pacific Ocean, or even spot the spouts of whales with the aid of binoculars. Since the campus is located at an optimal height above the Ilan plain, the view at night is even more stunning, making it the best holiday leisure spot of choice for Ilan area residents.

        Solar and wind power generating equipment is located next to the outdoor performance arena. Both are still being tested for how much electricity they can supply in order to assess whether they can provide a portion of the electricity for lighting the facility. These two generating sources now provide spectacular lighting at night, adding considerably to the luster of the campus.
