A private univeristy in Shandong province is not into people being into other people. The Qingdao Binhai University, a 24-year-old private vocational university in China, banned public display of affection and basically any physical interaction between their male and female students.
The controversial disciplinary rules include bans on holding hands and hugging the opposite sex. A male student told local media that he can't even help carry her females friends' bags without facing punishment.

Students are not allowed to share a tray with their romantic partners nor share an earphone. One student was given a "serious warning" when he was caught holding her girlfriend's hand. His punishment? He had to clean a dirty toilet. A school official, who declined to be named, said that they do not advocate or suppress student relationships, but only expect their students to "mind their manners."
Public shaming, cleaning bathrooms, and possible expulsion await student violators. The school official admitted that they do not have janitors as they believe that this will teach their students to be clean and tidy up after themselves.
Students' physical appearance are also closely monitored. Dyeing one's hair is not allowed without a valid reason and authorization from the university. A 100-point scoring system is maintained, with a grade below 60 counting as a failed mark. Students can earn extra credit by donating county annals to the school library, but the school official clarified that book donations are not mandatory.
