Study and Grow in a Relaxing Environment


HKUST is more than just a place at which to learn. We aim at developing our students to their full potential, preparing them for 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 in a relaxing environment.

Student amenities such as banks, medical clinics, a supermarket, a bookstore, postal services, a hair salon, a souvenir shop, and choices of Asian and Western catering outlets are located on campus. Other facilities include a five-story library with over 700,000 books, periodicals, microfilms and 300 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 amenities is also provided to encourage extra-curricular activities and to generally 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 transport is easily accessible, with the city center less than 30 minutes away. HKUST is near Hang Hau, home to an impressive range of restaurants, various malls, major supermarkets, a wet market, and the Tseung Kwan-O Public Hospital. Just ten minutes from the main campus by bus is Sai Kung, famous for its seafood restaurants, water sports facilities—including both Hong Kong’s major yacht clubs—and country parks with a wealth of hiking, mountain biking, and camping possibilities.

Lee Shau Kee Campus

The Lee Shau Kee Campus — including the Lee Shau Kee Business Building and the Institute for Advanced Study — was built in 2013. Located atop HKUST’s main campus, the Lee Shau Kee Campus occupies around 10 hectares, representing about 15% of the total campus area.

The HKUST Business School is located in this building. Students can enjoy state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and an exclusive area to work on group projects or assignments.
