Important Message from the College Principal - Class Suspension

Dear students, 

In view of the latest development of the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak, face-to-face classroom teaching at the College will be suspended after the Chinese New Year holidays and will resume on Monday, February 17, 2020. Details of the teaching and learning arrangements will be announced in due course.

Non-local students who are in Hong Kong are advised to stay in Hong Kong during the period when classes are suspended. Those who are not in Hong Kong at present should consider not returning to Hong Kong at this point in time.

The College has strengthened preventive measures as far as practicable. Please stay vigilant and take proper precautions related to personal hygiene and prevention of transmission or infection. For the latest updates and prevention measures, please refer to the following websites for more information: 

1. Severe Respiratory Disease associated with a Novel Infectious Agent 
2. HKU's Public Health, Pandemic and Epidemic Diseases Preparedness and Response website

Our teachers will use SOUL and emails to distribute course materials and assignments to ensure student learning not be disrupted. Please check regularly the latest information posted by the College on the Leaner Portal and the SOUL platforms.

Meanwhile, the campus will remain open, and offices will continue to operate as far as practicable.
This is a very dangerous coronavirus! Let us work together to overcome this potential epidemic!
