Building a Happy College through Sharing, Learning and Healthy Living
Shun Hing College is a community of budding scholars and professionals, who are working together to create a community of shared values and shared duties. We are learning from one another’s culture and values to rise above our differences to find common ground for the common good.

Health and Wellbeing
We are committed to promote exercise and active living led by two new tutors who are experienced exercise trainers, and by our award-winning Dragon Boat Team. New programmes include cross-fit training and weight management workshops.
Academics and Innovative Learning
Academics from the University and around Hong Kong are invited to inspire students to think about pressing issues. We continuously make an effort to enhance digital literacy and efffective learning among students through seminars and hands-on experiential learning.
SHC believes in promoting a holistic approach to green living, addressing issues such as energy saving, a plant-based diet, and waste-reduction practices. This year, we held a Green High Table Dinner, Residential Colleges’ with Mr. David Yeung, noted entrepreneur, environmental advocate, and founder of Green Monday.
Dining with a Purpose
High table dinners are an essential part of HKU’s culture. We at SHC, experiment with various formats for the traditional high table dinners. From having the Residential College’s first ever “Green High Table Dinner” to inviting inspiring guest speakers, we are committed to providing the SHC family an evening of fun and learning.
Through our myriad activities, we encourage SHC residents to cultivate an attitude of sharing and caring. We are continuoulsy defining our relationships with the surrounding neighbourhood, and the people who have generously accepted us into their crowded alleys and streets, their parks and walkways.
SHC provides opportunities to celebrate different cultures and festivals through sharing among the resident population of 450 students from 35 different countries. The SHC spirit of multi-cultural and multi-ethnic inclusion imbues all our programmes and activities.
