Several universities in Australia and in western China were investigated and compared together. Different aspects including equipment and facilities, arrangement of office and arrangement of laboratory, class scheduling, relationship between staff and students were considered to investigate differences between western Chinese and Australian universities. These parameters being investigated are seemingly trivial, subordinate and seldom been noticed by the public but it can quickly and greatly influence the humanity environment of campus and academic atmosphere. To do this study, Chinese economic factors and custom environment that caused these differences had been analyzed. Finally, it is pointed out some aspects of Australian universities that might be useful to be implemented in Chinese universities.
