Campus Life

HKUST is more than just a place to learn. We aim to develop our students to their full potential and prepare them to take the next step toward career success. We focus on creating a unique learning experience for each of our students, and developing future business leaders in Asia for the world.

Spread over 60 hectares in a beautiful setting in Clear Water Bay, the HKUST campus provides students with a relaxing environment in which to study and grow. Students enjoy all the benefits of a full-scale university campus with a wide range of facilities and support services.

Student amenities such as banks, postal services, medical clinics, a supermarket, a bookstore, a hair salon, a souvenir shop, and Asian and Western catering outlets are located on campus. Other facilities include a five-story library with over 700,000 books, periodicals, and microfilms, 100 electronic databases, computer barns, wireless Internet access, a language learning center, a self-access center with multimedia resources, swimming pools, a fitness center, tennis courts, an athletic track, and a soccer pitch.

A wide range of facilities are also provided to encourage engagement in extra-curricular activities and hobbies and to enhance the quality of campus life. These include conference and meeting rooms, common and quiet rooms, workshops and a darkroom, karaoke and music rooms, and a performance stage.

Public transportation is conveniently available, with the campus located less than 30 minutes away from the city center. HKUST is near Hang Hau, home to Tseung Kwan O Public Hospital, major supermarkets, an impressive range of restaurants, various shopping malls, and a wet market. Only 10 minutes from the main campus by bus, Sai Kung is famous for its seafood restaurants, water sports facilities (including one of Hong Kong’s two yacht clubs), and country parks, with a wealth of hiking, mountain biking, and camping options.
