17 Dec 2019

The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) announces that the Second Term of the academic year 2019-2020 will commence on Monday, 6 January 2020 as scheduled. Taking into consideration the progress of repair and restorative works on campus facilities as well as the projection by the MTR to reopen part of the University Station by the end of this month which is subject to the repair progress of the facilities, the University will continue to monitor the situation and make appropriate announcements if there are any changes.

Since the repair of school buses has not been completed, there will be special transport arrangements for the Second Term of 2019-2020, details of which will be announced on the CUHK website later. To ensure campus safety, the University has stepped up its security measures and the Campus Access Management Measures will be continued for the time being. All University staff and students are required to present their CU Link cards. Alumni must show their Alumni Library Card or CU Alumni Credit Card to prove their identity.  Others are required to show relevant temporary permits before entry. For details, please visit

With regard to the testing of campus water, soil and air samples conducted by the independent accredited laboratory appointed by the University, two batches of test results have been released. The results show that the health hazards of the contaminants from the soil and water samples are negligible. Details can be viewed on: Other test results will be announced immediately upon receipt.
