Hall Culture
Since its opening on 15th March 2004, Jockey Club Academy Hall (JCAC) has developed its unique culture - the “ABC Culture” (“A”cademic Excellence, “B”alanced Development, and “C”ommunity Citizenship). This culture encourages its residents, the “Academians”, to seek a balance in both intra- and extra-curricular aspects of development. “Academian” is an identity to be proud of. Submerged in its caring and family-like environment at JCAC, Academians are united and have a strong sense of belonging to the hall.

Location and Facilities
JCAC enjoys the geographical advantage of being the hall that lies closest to the campus. With Beacon Hill behind, the hall has a panoramic vista of Kowloon Peninsula and Hong Kong Island. It is equipped with a Gym Room, pool table, video game sets, and other hall facilities. The hall management teams manage the facilities and maintain them to best suit residents’ needs.
