Welcome to Morningside

“Morningside is a residential community of students, Fellows and Tutors that's intimate enough for students to get to know everyone there and has the resources and tradition to help them do that. It's particularly international and it's interdisciplinary, so that students can be inspired by other cultures and take in fresh ideas while excelling at their own disciplines. And the more they learn and develop the more they, in their turn, will inform and inspire others while building friendships, and networks, that will enrich their university experience while they're here, and stay with them all their lives.”


ProfNick Rawlins

Master of Morningside College



Morningside College was established in 2006 with a generous and imaginative founding donation from the Morningside Foundation. Our key role is to provide you a home in which to live, eat and learn while studying at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and to equip you with the essential skills of scholarship, virtue and service to take with you when you graduate. Morningside can be your place for conversation, argument and discovery.


The College is a home away from home for a diverse student population. We have students and alumni from more than 40 countries and territories including: Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, Egypt, France, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Israel, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Macau, Malaysia, Morocco, Myanmar, Netherlands, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Tunisia, Ukraine, United Kingdom, USA, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe.
