Enhanced Facilities Upgrade Campus for Double Cohort
Lee Shau Kee Campus Under Construction
Lee Shau Kee Business Building (right)and IAS’s Lo Ka Chung Building are key infrastructural components of our campus development.

To welcome the double cohort of undergraduates, new facilities are being opened up all around the HKUST campus. These new infrastructure projects will enhance and upgrade the campus. They encompass a wide range of amenities and facilities, incorporating the latest in technology. The facilities have been designed to provide a better learning and living environment for our students. Here's a pictorial guide to the new-look campus!

Lee Shau Kee Business Building comprises a lecture theater, classrooms, computer labs, meeting rooms and other facilities. It also features a roof-top garden and a courtyard.

Located on LG1 within the Lee Shau Kee Library and with a floor area of 1,800 square meters, the Chevalier Learning Commons is divided into four zones, namely Creative Media Zone, E-Learning Zone, Study Zone and Refreshment Zone, and is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies.

An additional 1,050 seats are provided in LG1 and LG7 restaurants as well as Academic Concourse Courtyard, all of which serve a great variety of cuisines. The total catering seating capacity on campus has increased by over 42% from 2,450 to 3,500.
