Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the world. Often described as The City of Light, Hong Kong is the meeting place of East and West where the indigenous culture of Southern China comes into contact with the best the West has to offer in the world of the arts and of entertainment. And the result has been a creative fusion that has thrown new light on many traditional art forms. Hong Kong is particularly well served in terms of performance venues and arts festivals.
On campus dormitory accommodations with modern facilities including broadband connectivity.

CUHK has an active social, extra-curricular, and sporting life. A wide range of cultural, academic, and social activities are open to students, including a music festival, a round the campus race, a Thousand People Feast, and various pastimes unique to Hong Kong and CUHK. The campus offers immediate access to lush parks and countryside, yet it is less than 25 minutes by car or train to the heart of the city.
