1.1 Robert Black College (Now not available, but may become available later)

Characteristic

The Robert Black College of the University of Hong Kong is situated in the university campus, in Mid-Levels on the western side of Hong Kong Island. It was established in 1967 primarily as a guest house of the University of Hong Kong for overseas visiting scholars. Guest rooms of the Robinson Wing provide beautiful sea views. May Wing, an annex to the College accommodating graduate students, is a red-brown monument built in European style on a hillside. 

The most remarkable feature of the College is its traditional Chinese row-house design with blue pitched roofs and white walls like a house of a wealthy Chinese nobleman. Two elegant black gates at the entrances of the Swire Wing add colour to the structure. In addition, there is an attractive front garden of subtle foliage colour with a Chinese sculpture and a fountain and a thickly planted backyard with beautiful paths of bricks and stones.

Facilities

Laundry room, drying room, ironing room, automatic vending machines, paid phones, function rooms, lounges, library, billiard room, gymnasium, Chinese gardens, basketball court, etc.
