Campus Expansion in Ho Man Tin
In view of the growing demand of allied health professionals, PolyU will construct a new Allied Health Education Hub at Ho Man Tin Slope to advance the development of the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and the School of Optometry, accelerating world-class health technology research and applications to benefit communities globally.
The project involves constructing an 11-storey academic and administration building, creating more than 10,000 square metres of additional floor area for new teaching and training facilities such as research laboratories, study areas and lecture theatres. There will also be a clinic providing a setting for students to learn and practise skills, while offering treatments to patients.
Supported by both the Secretary for Food and Health and Secretary for Education, the project is planned for completion in 2026.
Library Extension and Revitalisation
Given imminent space needs and to further support new learning paradigms, a new glasshouse-style floor will be added on top of the existing Pao Yue-kong Library, providing an additional net area of over 2,000 square metres to house new facilities. The revitalisation involves a comprehensive facelift, enhancing the functionality of over 1,600 square metres of existing floor area.
The project, which will transform the Library into a modern Interactive Learning Hub is expected to be completed by the end of 2023.
Industrial Centre Extension and Revitalisation
The existing Industrial Centre, which serves to provide engineering education as well as technical and research support to researchers and students, will be repositioned as an innovation and technology hub. An addition of two storeys will be constructed on the top of blocks U and W to provide an extra 5,400 square metres space for academic purpose. The existing floor area of 17,200 square metres will be reorganised to enhance functionality.
The project will be completed by the end of 2029.
