It was in 1910 that the foundation stone of the Main Building was laid and from where grew the Main Campus. 

One hundred years later the Centennial Campus became the home of the Faculties of Law, Arts and Social Sciences, as well as the Grand Hall and the Learning Commons.

The University of Hong Kong has now embarked on further plans to strengthen its headquarters to tackle the challenges of the next century.  The campus extensions are designed for innovation and entrepreneurship, exciting collaborations and cross-disciplinary pursuits. 

These projects will be completed in phases in the next five years or so.

Let us continue the proud tradition of vibrant diversity, of openness which has been this city’s hallmark of success.  With open arms we will embrace talents from all over the world.

We will enhance the long-term competitiveness of Hong Kong and Asia in the new technology arena by leveraging the strengths of Hong Kong’s universities and build world-class innovation centres. We will recruit 100 professoriate, leading global scholars who will create knowledge and advance humanity. 

The Chinese for ‘crisis’ comes in two words, risk and opportunity. There is indeed a narrow window of opportunity. So let us forge ahead with renewed togetherness for the post-pandemic era and find solutions for global grand challenges. Let us create hope for future generations and, with unwavering faith, position Hong Kong as not only a city for China but also for the World.
