On Going Projects

On-campus Expansion (OCE)

The Academy has successfully obtained approval from the Legislative Council in June 2012 for a funding of HK$444.8 Million for an on-campus expansion (OCE) project to relieve the Academy’s current space shortfall and to support the implementation of the normative four-year undergraduate programme under the new academic structure.

Consultations were conducted with various stakeholders including the Wanchai District Council, Harbourfront Commission as well as the Academy’s students and staff to gain their supports.
