    Hong Kong University of Science & Technology

    by coolpanda87 Updated Apr 4, 2011
    University of Science & Technology

    Located at Sai Kung, it is Hong Kong's most Hi Tech University. This area is mostly undeveloped. From this university, you can get beautiful views of the Pacific coast, as it looked throughout Hong Kong over a century ago.

    the Hong Kong Polytechnic University

    by kwanmichelle Written Nov 20, 2004
    main entrance

    The Hong Kong Polytechnic University is located at Hung Hom. Before becoming an University, it was a technical College.
    It's located at the very central of Hong Kong at Hung Hom, right next to the Cross Harbour Tunnel and the KCR Hung Hom Station.
    The university could be easily recognised with its red bricks on the walls, as well as its castle-like outlook.
    (well, this is the university that i am studying in :P)

    The Chinese University of Hong Kong

    by coolpanda87 Written Jan 26, 2004
    Pond at CUHK

    The Chinese University is a 134-hectare campus with more than 130 buildings. It rises from Tolo Harbour just north of Sha Tin.

    It is also one of Hong Kong's most prestigious Universities, embarking on a massive project to develop a Science & Technology Park. Phase I has already been awarded most intelligent building of the year by the Asian Institute of Intelligent Buildings, so much is expected out of this new high tech playground. The hi-tech building is very beautiful indeed, standing proudly by the Tolo waterfront.

    Hong Kong University (II) - Architecture

    by coolpanda87 Written Jan 26, 2004
    Hong Kong University Campus

    Hong Kong University has a mix of English Colonial, contemporary & futuristic style buildings. Since Hong Kong University occupies a very small amount of land & it is on the side of the hill, every building tries to maximize space, while fitting into its surroundings. For some unknown reason, almost all the buildings are either dark red or purple...

    If you are hungry while exploring, eat at the cafeteria in Hong Kong University, for it offers delicious lunches at a very reasonable price.

    Is this a resort or a university?!

    HK University of Science and Technology. This relatively new university is absolutely the most scenic campus I have ever set foot upon. Oh, and it is also one of the top rated universities in Asia.. but you wouldn't care about that!

    It is located between Sai Kung to the north and Clear Water Bay to the south. The buildings themselves are white, with generous usage of glass and bright colours. I had the best time of my life while studying there on exchange, and the beautiful location of the university certainly played a role. Definitely worth checking out, especially if you're heading out that way. Just check out my picture.. if I were to tell you that this is a sea-side resort complex, would you doubt me?

    To get to it, go to Lam Tin MTR Station and take bus #298, which terminates at the university. Alternatively you can go to Choi Hung MTR Station and look for bus #93 going to Hang Hou or Clear Water Bay. If you are adventurous enough, there are mini-buses from Choi Hung MTR that go to the university as well.

    You can find more info (and some beautiful pix, especially ones from the air) at their website.
