Opening of CLASS Staff Common Room

The first-ever CLASS Staff Common Room has been established at Y7613 on Level 7, Yeung Kin Man Academic Building (Lift 4). Easily accessible with CityU staff card through a smart-lock, all full-time staff members of CLASS are entitled to freely use the room from 8am to 8pm, Monday to Saturday, to read newspapers, take a short break, or have small gatherings.

Inspired by the mid-autumn festival celebrating harvest and union, the CLASS Staff Common Room was launched after the first meeting of the College Board in the academic year. It provides a cosy and pleasant space for staff to refresh and recharge, to connect with colleagues, and to support one another in moments of relaxation. The College Board members joined a delightful “Moonstruck tour” on September 6. The room was formally open to CLASS full-time staff on the following day. Colleagues came together at lunchtime and enjoyed riddle games and received festive gifts. The open day ended with laughter and excitement, marking the beginning of another fruitful academic year.

Considerable efforts have been devoted by CLASS to infrastructure building in recent years, to expand the College's capacity to advance our academic excellence. These facilities include the CLASS Focus Group Meeting Rooms, ed with comfortable bean bag chairs to facilitate interactions and consultations between staff and students; the CLASS Interdisciplinary Multi-function Room, equipped with state-of-the-art conference equipment to support high-impact academic exchanges, executive trainings and outreach events organised by CLASS and its AUs; and the CLASS Guest Office, a decent and conveniently-located workspace for short-term visitors of the College.

Colleagues are encouraged to make good use of the College facilities. More details are available at the CLASS website www.cityu.edu.hk/class/facilities.aspx。
