Founded in 1963, the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) is a top-ranked research university in Asia and all over the world. In 2014, CUHK (Shenzhen) was approved by the Ministry of Education of the PRC and established in Shenzhen in accordance with the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Chinese-foreign Cooperation in Running Schools. It has become a remarkable complement to Shenzhen's higher education resources.
The characteristics of flexible credit system, a college system, bilingualism and multiculturalism, as well as top-ranked research ability in the world are inherited by CUHK's Shenzhen campus. The cross-integration between the schools and the colleges is a major feature of CUHK. The schools are space for study and research processes of various majors. The colleges provide accommodation, catering, community activities and other places for students to create a unique atmosphere for whole-person education.
The CUHK (Shenzhen) project is invested by the Shenzhen Municipal Government. The first phase of the project was put into use in September 2017. The campus planning fully respects the integrity of the natural environment. The teaching blocks, auditorium, library, research blocks and colleges are organized in an orderly manner. The main entrance of the campus and the “Million Avenue” of the central green space continue the iconic character of CUHK elements.
Currently, Phase II of the campus planning and design project is about to call for tender. Aiming to build a platform supported by professionalism, justice and openness, this project invites global design teams to participate in the bidding.
CUHK (Shenzhen) is aiming to be established as a world-class research university. It reflects the intrinsic needs for Shenzhen's rapid development. CUHK (Shenzhen) is a crucial project that the Shenzhen Municipal Government has highly valued and is committed to.
