Campus expansion to meet allied health professionals’ training needs
PolyU is pleased to announce that its funding proposal for a campus expansion project at Ho Man Tin Slope was approved by the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council on 26 June 2020. The proposal for a new academic building, which is needed to meet the increase in UGC-funded healthcare training places, was supported by both the Secretary for Food and Health and the Secretary for Education.
The project involves the construction of an 11-storey academic and administration building, providing over 10,000 square metres for classrooms, lecture theatres, teaching and research laboratories, study spaces, amenities and additional facilities for students of optometry and rehabilitation sciences. It also includes the provision of a hostel building providing 1,279 places, which is being partially funded by Government’s Hostel Development Fund. The project is planned to be completed in 2026.
