For over 40 years, PolyU's School of Hotel and Tourism Management has refined a distinctive vision of hospitality and tourism education and become a world-leading hotel and tourism school.


World-class Hotel and Tourism School

Situated in Hong Kong, and in the heart of the booming Asia-Pacific region, the School of Hotel and Tourism Management (SHTM) is uniquely positioned not just to ride the Asian wave in tourism and hospitality, but to lead it in educational excellence.

Hotel ICON

This unique teaching and research "hotel with a purpose" offers a fully integrated approach to education with an interactive and dynamic learning environment and state-of-the-art educational facilities.

Mr and Mrs Chan Chak Fu Building

The building that houses the School was named after the late Mr and Mrs Chan Chak-fu, a pioneer Hong Kong hotelier, in appreciation for their significant and generous contributions to support PolyU's development and advancements in hospitality and tourism education and research.

Gallery of Honour

Located in the School's lobby, the Gallery of Honour displays portraits of the outstanding recipients of the SHTM Lifetime Achievement Award, people who represent the world's most successful hospitality organisations and recognisable brands.

Student Hub

An open and innovative communal space, the Student Hub plays a key role in promoting the interaction and integration of students from different cultures. It is not only an ideal venue for hosting student events, but also an exciting space for students to connect with peers from diverse backgrounds, and to develop their ability to become more open-minded in embracing cultural differences.
