The Grand Opening Ceremony of the Global Student Hub was successfully held on 18 October 2021. The official ceremony was graced by the presence of PolyU’s Deputy President and Provost Professor Wing-tak Wong, together with the Central Management Team and over 70 staff members and students.


Addressing the ceremony, Professor Wing-tak Wong said, “The Global Student Hub is a new on-campus facility. It is a key step towards further promoting student development, integration and internationalisation. The University is not just providing a new physical space for student activities; it is providing a place to help develop our local and non-local students’ ability to connect with peers from diverse backgrounds and to become more open-minded in embracing cultural differences – an invaluable quality in our inter-connected world.”


Performers from PolyU’s Hall Dance Team, the Indonesian Student Association, non-local students and orchestra members added colour to the occasion with their cultural performances.


The Global Student Hub is an ideal venue for hosting student events and student-initiated activities such as cultural galas, music and drama performances, exhibitions and team-building activities, providing more opportunities for local and non-local students to get together, to share and to learn, and, in turn, to embrace diversity and better integrate into university life.
