About the Project
Support HKU's Future Development
The Pokfield Campus, alongside other campus extension projects in the next 5 years, is the University’s strategic development to support innovation and entrepreneurship, collaborations and cross-disciplinary pursuits that will accelerate the growth of HKU into the future and beyond. It will be a new iconic landmark on the Pokfulam Road that will connect with and enhance the overall ambience of the community.
New Home for HKU Business School
As the HKU Business School is aspiring to become a premier business school in Asia with significant global influence, it needs more teaching and research space with innovative facilities to grow and nurture new generations of business leaders. This new, modern home will also provide sufficient communal space to foster interaction and incubation of ideas with business practitioners for a global business school that emphasises collaboration and outreach.
Facilitate Academic Exchange
The University has launched a global recruitment campaign to recruit leading scholars, and it will require more residential facilities that meet the needs of junior professoriate staff and their families, as well as visiting academics for academic exchange in the short to medium term. These premium accommodation will boost HKU’s competitiveness and international image.
Modernise Our Sports Facilities
The Flora Ho Sports Centre and Lindsay Ride Sports Centre have served the HKU community for decades and it is time to bring our facilities to the 21st Century. The new campus will provide a multi-functional and contemporary sports facility.
The new Pokfield Complex will be a multi-faceted and functionally cohesive academic-residential-culture and sports complex comprising five buildings and open spaces.
The project group for the Pokfield Campus is to guide and monitor the overall development of the project, including the scope, time and cost of the project, and engagement of consultants, specialists and contractors about this project.
