The Jiangmen Underground Neutrino Observatory (JUNO) is a 20 kton liquid scintillator detector with primary goal for neutrino mass hierarchy determination. Due to the low background requirement of the experiment, the detector will be built in a 700 m rock deep underground laboratory for muon flux suppression. A multi-veto system for cosmic muon detection and background reduction has been designed. The volume outside the central detector is a water Cherenkov detector which equipped with 2000 MCP-PMTs (20 in.) for muon tagging. A Top Tracker detector will be built by re-using the Target Tracker plastic scintillator modules of the OPERA experiment. It will provide valuable muon track information for cosmic muon induced background study.
