The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) campus is built on a hillside and is the largest and the most stunning in Hong Kong. Most of this area is covered in greenery which is nicely carved out of rocks on three plateaux, and nestled among the greenery are tasteful buildings featuring a mix of Chinese and Western architectural styles. The CUHK campus is a famous haven for many varieties of flora and fauna which great care has been taken to protect and enhance. It also commands panoramic views of the Tolo Harbour and mountain ranges nearby.
From a one-stop student IT Portal, libraries, learning enhancement programmes, health care to career planning and many other services, CUHK provides full academic and personal support to its postgraduate students on campus.
