Xianlin University City () is an area in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, with a number of universities. It is located to the northeast of Purple Mountain.


The university city was an undeveloped, rural property in 1989, and multi-storied buildings were built there as the city grew. In 2001 the area was named Xianlin University City. In November 2011, an Undergraduate Education Teach Council was established by Nanjing Normal University, Nanjing University, Nanjing University of Finance and Economics, Nanjing University of Posts and Telecommunications, and Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine. The council was created to promote modern higher education practices to attract international university students and keep pace with new trends in education. A College of Geography Science, Nanjing Normal University study was conducted in 2011 to evaluate different aeration methods for removing high levels of nitrogen from a heavily polluted river in the Xianlin University Town. The “Xianlin Science City Development Consortium” was formed by 12 universities on February 25, 2012, to cooperate on research, sharing resources, event planning and the development of a "science city", with each university having its own science facilities. Vice Major of Nanjing, Lu Bing, is responsible for the oversight of the Management Committee of Xianlin University City as of 2014.
