The City
With a population of seven million, Hong Kong is the world's eleventh largest trading economy and has the second busiest container port globally. It is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city where Chinese traditions coexist with the latest world trends. Chinese art and culture are available alongside western performing and visual arts, including Chinese and Western films, international pop tours, and clubs. Colorful Chinese festivals provide insight into some of the traditions of China's 500-year-old culture. Returned to Chinese sovereignty in 1997, the flow of people, goods and vehicles between Hong Kong and Mainland China have been expanding rapidly.

Student Life
Minibuses link the campus to nearby Mass Transit Railway subway stations which take you to most parts of the city. Buses and taxis are also available. On campus, there are numerous food options, offering northern and southern Chinese, other Asian, as well as international food, as well as a coffee shop and a snack shop. There are also banks, postal services, a supermarket, hair salon, bookshop, co-op shop, souvenir shop and self-service photocopiers. A health center is available with medical and dental clinics. There are a variety of recreational facilities, including but not limited to swimming pools, fitness facilities, climbing wall, tennis courts, and music rooms. HKUST's advanced IT network and internet access covers all parts of the university, with bilingual Chinese and English capability.

International full-time students are offered on-campus accommodation. There are six undergraduate residence halls. Most rooms are shared by two students, and are air-conditioned and furnished. Common facilities include bathrooms, lounges with TVs, pantries, microwaves, telephones, and coin-operated laundry facilities.

Travel Opportunities
Hong Kong's fast and cost-effective public transportation system provides easy access to beautiful beaches and countryside. For travel to China, Asia and the world, Hong Kong's award-winning, ultra-modern Chek Lap Kok airport serves 40 cities in China and over 100 destinations worldwide. Most major Asian locations are within a four-hour flight and half the world's population is within five hours by air. Beijing's Forbidden City and the Xi'an Terracotta Warriors are both just three hours away (please note: a tourist visa is required for all travel within China).
