Dear All Staff and Students,
Super Typhoon “Mangkhut” brought considerable damage and disruption to Hong Kong. Our campus was not spared but fortunately with good preparation, we encountered minimal damage. While our colleagues in FMO and CDO are working to restore our campus to normal operation, we recommend the following safety precautionary measures:


Traveling back and moving around on campus:

  • Stay clear of barricaded zones
  • Stay clear of trees with loose branches
  • Stay clear of glass doors and windows with damaged panels
  • Be careful of wet and slippery floors


At your work/study area:

  • Perform a safety check to identify any potential risks (e.g. damaged properties, water leakages). Report defect or damage to FMO immediately at 2766 7777
  • Perform visual checks of electrical appliances for abnormality before use
  • For laboratory users, conduct a thorough safety condition check before starting any laboratory activities. Report leakage or spillage of hazardous substances immediately to Campus Control Centre at 2766-7999


If you are in doubt, please do not hesitate to call us at 3400-8396 or email to  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Thank you very much for your co-operation.
