HKIA is delighted to invite you to join us for a site visit to the 5th phase of the Student Hostel project at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) in Whitehead, Ma On Shan. This project offers high-quality accommodation and learning space, as well as a large amount of green equipment, academic and amenity facilities where students from all over the world can explore their aspirations and potential together. ​

​During the visit, you will be given a comprehensive presentation of the Whitehead Hostel, followed by a site walk on the sample floor. This is an excellent opportunity for you to witness first-hand the remarkable progress of this project and to learn about an advanced construction technology called Modular Integrated Construction (MiC), which involves over 1,300 modules in the overall building complex. The Whitehead Hostel is currently the world's largest student hostel project to have adopted MiC technology, measured by the number of bed spaces. In addition to hostel rooms, there will be communal rooms, corridors, toilets, and plant rooms constructed using MiC.​ 

​This site visit is exclusively for HKIA members. Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email.
