Where You Belong Discover our campus The Medical Campus on Sassoon Road is home to our teaching schools and departments, research laboratories and various state-of-the-art facilities. The learning environment embodies our goals and we are expanding to provide the finest training facilities for the next generation of healthcare professionals. The latest addition - 3 Sassoon Road - welcomes you to the Medical Campus with sleek communal spaces and spacious clinical skills laboratories equipped with high-fidelity simulators. The building’s nine storeys serve as the home of the School of Chinese Medicine and School of Nursing with facilities tailored to the needs of each School’s students. Our core mission is to enrich the total learning experience for students by creating spaces for them to socialise and connect outside the classroom, which is exemplified by the Cheung Chin Lan Hong Atrium that invites you into the William M.W. Mong Block. A few floors above this airy space is the Faculty Learning Commons where you can study independently or work collaboratively with peers. This Medical Campus landmark serves as the venue for many events, making it a popular spot for socialising. For those looking for a quiet place to learn, the Yu Chun Keung Medical Library is a centre of excellence in knowledge management. The Medical Library’s significant digital resources and print collections cover biomedical and health sciences, while new alternate reality and virtual reality tools on the mezzanine level allow you to delve deeper. Our ambitious development plans centre around our students’ whole-person development, which means we care about not only your studies but also your well-being. This goal is embodied by the addition of the new outdoor garden on 1/F of the William M.W. Mong Block, where you can enjoy panoramic sea views and take a breath of fresh air between classes, attesting to our dual emphasis. Another recent addition, the Faculty Boardroom located in the Faculty Administration Wing, brings us yet closer to this objective by providing ample space for academic conferences and professional seminars. We are proud to support our diverse student body with the addition of gender-neutral facilities and a new prayer room which gives members of our community a dedicated location to pursue their spiritual lives. Looking into the future, the Sassoon Road Campus will be transformed into a state-of-the-science campus stretching from Queen Mary Hospital (QMH) on Pokfulam Road at the top, to the Victoria Road roundabout at the bottom. This reinvigorated teaching complex will provide even greater opportunities for our students. 7
