To enhance the facilitation and support to campus life and student bodies, the College has decided to redevelop 2 Staff Quarters into a Twin Building comprising a Student Activity Center and a Multi-Purpose Complex. This project will help increase 12,800 square feet indoor space for student activities, featuring a rooftop garden, a mini-theatre, a caring corner as well as multi-purpose facilities. The estimated budget of the project is at least HK$200 million. Thanks to the unfailing support from the College Board of Trustees, a grant of HK$50 million and another matching grant of up to HK$50 million is committed and the remaining is targeted to be raised.
To kick off the fundraising campaign, a ceremony was held on the College Founders’ Day, October 27, 2017 (Friday), during the College’s Thanksgiving Service.
