A Note to Our Readers

As a leading university in Asia, HKUST is always a work in progress. As you can see around you, our university is growing in size, diversity, and in the sophistication of our facilities to achieve our mission. Come September, we will also grow considerably in numbers, courtesy of the 334 reform. We hope that by going digital with Genesis, you can keep abreast of the latest developments on campus, whether you are a student, faculty or staff member, graduate or supporter. You can access the news at your fingertips, wherever you are, whenever you desire.
