In 1946, the school asked the Military Camp Property Management Administration to allocate the current site temporarily for the construction of its faculty dormitory. In 2005, the site was converted under the urban planning project of Tainan City into a land plot used for cultural and educational development. On September 30, 2009, the University Council resolved to designate the site as Tung-Ning Campus. With a portion reserved for faculty dormitory, the campus is designed to provide facilities for student accommodation and recreation.


This campus, with a total area of 8.5 hectares, is located to the north of Hsiao-Tung Road, to the west of Sheng-Li Road, and directly across from Kuang-Fu Campus. This campus comprises three land lots formerly occupied by the old Highway Motor Vehicle Office (1.1 hectares), Taiwan Automobile Company Maintenance Station (1.7 hectares) and the 804 Army Hospital (5.7 hectares), which were acquired by the University in 1988, 1999 and 2002, respectively  for campus development. The campus is designated to provide buildings and facilities for medical and academic purposes. Presently there are three medical buildings, including a medical nursing building in the north, the second NCKU hospital outpatient building in the south, and a universal health building in the east. Specifically, the health building is used by the University to facilitate cooperative research with the National Health Research Institute. On the west side of this campus are academic buildings, including the building for the College of Social Sciences and the Y.S. Sun Green Building Research Center.

This campus is located in Kuei-jen District of the Great Tainan City, with a total area of 26 hectares encompassing a 20.9-hectare land lot purchased from the Taiwan Sugar Company in July of 1987, a 0.6-hectare land lot purchased from the National Treasury Bureau in March of 1989, and another 4.4 hectares acquired from The Taiwan Sugar Company in July of 2008. It was originally designated by the University, with the authorization of the Executive Yuan, for development into an experimental field to help the Ministry of National Defense (MND) with the development of aeronautics and astronautics technology. However, in 1995, following the end of the educational research cooperation between NCKU and MND, this University set up a fire prevention research center with laboratory facilities on this campus under the commission of Construction and Planning Agency, Ministry of The Interior and Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection, Ministry of Economic Affairs. Subsequently, a building was constructed and inaugurated as the Building of the NCKU Fire Prevention and Safety Research Center. In July, 1998, upon approval by the Executive Yuan, the Architecture and Building Research Institute under the Ministry of The Interior set up research and experimental facilities for architectural fire prevention and performance, which has helped NCKU with the education and research in the fields of architecture and mechanical engineering. Therefore, this campus is distinguished from other ones as being part of a strong foundation for the development of national technology in Taiwan.


The campus has a total area of 72.2 hectares, encompassing several land lots obtained from the Taiwan Salt Works, Ministry of Economic Affairs, since 1993. It is designated primarily to provide buildings and facilities for industrial-educational cooperation and training programs. The buildings and facilities on this campus include the Hydraulic Model Experimental Field, the administrative building of NCKU Research and Services Headquarters (RSH), NCKU Environmental Resources Research Administration Center, a resource recycling plant, a fishery experimental laboratory and a hydraulic water quality laboratory. Notably, the hydraulic experimental field has the largest wave basin and wave flume in the world. The Headquarters works to facilitate the development of industry-government-university collaboration. The recycling plant serves to help manage the disposal of experimental materials from schools of all levels across the nation. Currently under construction are an aquatic technology experimental and teaching building, and a building for the Marine Biology and Cetacean Research Center.


This campus is situated in Douliu City of Yunlin County, and was transformed from a national army hospital complex and transferred to the University on July 1, 2005, as a result of a policy to streamline the military. The hospital complex, occupying a total area of 4.5 acres, has been instituted as a branch of the university hospital to continue its operations. In addition to several Japanese buildings, the newly-completed medical complex is intended to follow the former military hospital and provide medical services to soldiers, their family members and local residents in Yunlin County. Meanwhile, the University aims to operate a hospital-oriented campus to help fulfill national and local medical policies and meet medical needs in the Yunlin area.
