When the pandemic hit Hong Kong, CityU rewrote the playbook. Staff worked incredibly hard and with a huge amount of creativity to ensure that teaching and research continued as scheduled. Despite the pressure, it was business as usual at CityU.

Our online platform CityU-Learning was launched within days of the decision to suspend face-to-face classes. We were the first university in Hong Kong, and probably in the world, to roll out a new campus-wide, real-time, online learning platform.

The safety of students and staff has remained our top priority throughout this public health crisis. Our comprehensive anti-virus measures include flexible work arrangements, checking people’s body temperature at the main entrances, and providing masks and hand rub. We wholeheartedly thank all the staff, suppliers and contractors for facilitating our operations.
