We have heard from student residents their concerns about noise and other inconvenience caused by the construction of the Academic & Administration Building, the Community College of City University (CCCU) Building and the Student Residence Phase 4 (SR4). Here is some information that explains more about the current projects.

The projects aim at providing a better campus and accommodation environment for students. The CCCU Building is a combined academic, administrative and amenities building for sub-degree programs. It has a construction floor area of approximately 42,000 sq.m. After its construction our University Concourse won’t be as crowded as now, nor will the canteen. And the SR4 will provide 700 more bed places for UGC students by January 2012.


We are very concerned about the fact that noise generated by the projects is affecting residents’ daily life. According to the HK regulations, construction work can take place from 7am to 7pm. We have been working closing with the contractor of the Phase 4 and have requested them to start "noisy works" after 8am. We will monitor this regularly, especially during the revision and exam seasons.

Besides noise, safety in commuting between the Student Residence and the main campus is a concern. Never go into a construction site for any reason. When you walk down Tat Chee Avenue and pass through the vehicle entrance of the CCCU Building construction site, keep your eyes open as you walk through the vehicle entrance.

We hope our residents understand that this is a sacrifice for the future of our university.
