Dear Freshmen,

On behalf of the United College of The Chinese University of Hong Kong, I would like to welcome all of you in joining our big family. Being a fresh “Glorious UCians”, you might be exploring various services of our College at this stage. Therefore, we have prepared some useful information for your easy reference.

You can also take some time to browse the College freshmen homepage to get the most updated messages and news.  If you have questions other than the above areas, please email unitedcollege@cuhk.edu.hk and we will do our best to respond as soon as possible.

As we are currently affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Orientation Camp Organising Committee has arranged day camp activities on 30 August and 1 September 2022.  If you have not yet registered for this event and would like to join now, please contact Ms Jade Lau, chairperson of the College Orientation Camp Organizing Committee at 6609 2719 or email uc22ocamp@gmail.com  for registration.

Lastly, I strongly encourage you to make good use of the resources available at both the University and the College, so that you will enjoy a fruitful University life at the United College.


Yours sincerely,
Professor Martin Wong
