    a new chapter

    New Facilities - Library Learning Commons (Ho Sik Yee Library)

    At the start of a new semester, the Library is proud to present you our new Learning Commons located inside the Ho Sik Yee Library (Jockey Club Campus).  It is a place where students can come together, collaborate and participate in various innovative and dynamic learning activities.
    What's new then?
    Dynamic Learning Spaces
    Group study rooms
    Tables and chairs in the two Group Study Rooms inside the Learning Commons have been replaced with a brand new look. What’s more, each of the rooms is now equipped with an interactive whiteboard to facilitate your group discussion and collaborative learning.

We are not talking about table reservation in a restaurant but different styles of seats we offer in the Learning Commons that serve different needs! Curious to know more? Just come and explore which types of seats best suit your study needs!
