Recent Campus Development
Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare
Hong Kong is facing an aging population which has posed considerable challenges to the society and, in particular, to the healthcare system. To ensure an adequate supply of healthcare professionals, the University has embarked on an exciting $850-milllion new campus development project on Sheung Shing Street. This will be the new “Jockey Club Institute of Healthcare”, which will be home to a suite of healthcare programmes that aims to provide the next generation of healthcare professionals to address community needs.
The new campus, which is expected to be completed in 2020, will become the base for the Institute and will provide a conducive environment for aspiring learners to pursue their studies. Besides, it will provide active learning classrooms, learning commons, auditoriums, sports centre and student activities area for all OUHK students. To know more about the Institute, please
Jockey Club Campus
The completion of the new 12-storey Jockey Club Campus on Chung Hau Street in Ho Man Tin marks a remarkable new achievement of OUHK. The building was completed in early 2014 and was designed to accommodate the rapidly rising demand for our full-time programmes. To echo with the government's promotion of the six crucial industries in Hong Kong, Jockey Club Campus provides full-time programmes in Cultural and Creative Arts, Testing and Certification and Medical services.
The annual intake of Jockey Club Campus is about 750, with a total capacity of 2,400 students. The total construction cost of the building is close to HK$700 million, with state-of-the-art facilities and student-oriented setups like Arts studios and laboratories, Testing and Certification Laboratories, Clinical Nursing Education Centre, Auditorium, Active Learning Classrooms and Learning Commons.
Kwai Hing Learning Centre
At a cost of nearly HK$800 million, the Open University of Hong Kong (OUHK) acquired five storeys of commercial space at the Kowloon Commerce Centre in Kwai Chung last year to establish the Kwai Hing Learning Centre and as the headquarters of its Li Ka Shing Institute of Professional and Continuing Education (LiPACE).
With a gross area of over 120,000 square feet, the Kwai Hing Learning Centre is three times the size of its original premise in Sheung Wan, and will be able to accommodate 1,500 students.
The centre comprises not only fully-equipped classrooms, PC and languages laboratories, lecture theatre and learning resources centre, but also several purpose-built teaching/learning facilities such as design studio, mock-up airplane cabin, hotel room, hospital ward and radio broadcasting studio, aiming to enrich students' learning experiences.
All these new developments rely on the ardent support from our community. We are grateful for the generous contribution from our donors, supporters and friends who have allowed OUHK to reach for new heights continually.
