The chancellor of a Chinese university has come under fire following claims that an underground brothel, at which student cardholders were given discounts, was operating on his campus.
The 15,000 students at Wuhan’s Wuchang University of Technology enjoy access to a 1.4 million-book library and classrooms overlooking the picturesque Tangxun Lake, according to its official website.
But the university’s campus offered more than just literature and countryside views, according to a report in the Beijing Times newspaper on Monday.
For a secretive sex club was allegedly operating inside a five-floor luxury hotel on university property.
The brothel attempted to conceal its activities by functioning under the guise of a “foot massage department”, the newspaper claimed.

Students seeking sexual encounters with prostitutes were advised to alert hotel receptionists by using the code: "I am looking for Sister Zhou for some health care.”
A whistleblower student, who was given the alias “Mr Chen”, told the newspaper he was shocked to have discovered such extra-curricular services being offered on his campus.
“It is outrageous that this is going on at our school,” Mr Chen was quoted as saying.
“Our parents have spent so much money to send us here to study and they do not expect such things from the school environment.”
Details of the alleged sex club emerged after an undercover investigation in which a Beijing Times reporter posed as a student to gather information the hotel’s clandestine after-class services.
The newspaper claimed the hotel was run by the Guangxi Science and Education Group - the same company responsible for running the university.
Professor Zhao Zuobin, the university’s chancellor, was also chairman of that company, the newspaper claimed.
One hotel employee allegedly offered to procure female prostitutes for reporter and said that clients who possessed a student card would receive a discount.
“You can ask for any kind of girl you like, so that you won’t be disappointed when she arrives,” she said.
However, the employee became angry when the reporter, who was posing as a student, attempted to haggle down from her suggested price of 460 yuan (£46.70).
“You students are rich. You just don’t make money but your parents give you a lot of money,” she said.
University officials denied any knowledge of or link to the hotel and its alleged prostitution racket.
“Our school has nothing to do with the hotel - nothing,” a university propaganda official who declined to give his name told The Telegraph.
“No university employees have full-time or part-time jobs at the hotel,” the university added in a statement.
The university also rejected claims that Prof Zhao – a specialist in “political education” - was involved in the hotel’s administration. Allegations about the on-campus sex club had been communicated to authorities “at the earliest possible moment”.
The Wuchang University of Technology – whose motto is ‘Pursue excellence, Achieve success’ – was formally founded in 2011. It is one of hundreds of institutions to have opened during a two-decade university boom that has turned China into the world’s biggest higher education provider.
Prostitution has been illegal in China since Communist take-over in 1949 but also boomed following the economic reforms of the 1970s.
A major anti-vice campaign was launched in February in which brothels and KTV clubs were closed in Dongguan, a southern factory hub known as the country’s “Sin City”.
