Don't worry. It is very safe to stay in the airport till morning. You can take shuttle bus line 4 to Tianehu Hotel Station, and transfer to bus No.18/64 from Anhui Daily Station to Shibagang Station, and take bus No.149 to Furong Xiqu Station, then walk south of 400m to the university. It takes around 2 hours with CNY29.

Upon landing, it is advised to take airport shuttle bus line 1 to get to General Bus Station first. The last bus schedule is at 21:10. Thus you can catch it. After arriving, walk northwest around 650 meters to find the Main Railway Station.

About the accommodation, you can find a hotel nearby the railway station. In general, you don't need to worry about the safety problem. 7 Days Inn is a good choice, which is located at Room 112, Donghai Mansion, Zhanqian Road, Yaohai District.
