Inauguration of HKU Shun Hing College - A celebration of the shared values of University education

The University of Hong Kong (HKU) held an inauguration ceremony for the Shun Hing College on 7 February 2015, which provides a total of 304 single and 85 double rooms for undergraduates and postgraduates. Shun Hing College is established by the Shun Hing Education and Charity Fund, a long-term partner of HKU for over three decades.

Home to students from international, Mainland and Hong Kong, the College is intellectually and culturally diversified learning communities, with a balanced mix of undergraduates and postgraduates. The Residential College has its own mission, motto and character, and its members will have life-long bonding after graduation.

Students have a strong sense of identity and an emphasis on contribution to society, they are committed to community engagement. Since 2012, students have initiated various projects for the promotion of town-gown relations and contributed to society local and beyond. They have launched service projects, started eco farming in the Long Valley fresh water wetland, and built bio-sand filters in Cambodia. They have also organised music and cultural festivals for the neighbourhood, started media projects led by Oscar-winning film director Ruby Yang on the documentaries for the Western District, as well as hosted basin meals for the elderly in the Colleges.
