Welcome to Morningside

“Morningside College could be your home for the next four years. We have good buildings, comfortable spaces to think, write, read, talk, play music, exercise, argue, eat and sleep. You must see the College. But it is more than its buildings. It is a place where we all want to know a lot more at the end of the year than at the beginning; and maybe even make some progress in solving or at least understanding problems yet unsolved.”


Prof. Sir James Mirrlees

Founding 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.
