There are two major universities in Wenzhou: Wenzhou University and Wenzhou Medical College.

Its main campus is situated in the University Town, Cha Shan. The former campus of Wenzhou Normal College on Xueyuan Road is still in use, while the former main campus of the University of Wenzhou now

serves as the campus of the Wenzhou Foreign Language School and the Second Experimental Middle School of Wenzhou (No.13 Middle School).
