Hung Hing Ying Building of the University of Hong Kong
Bonham Road

Hung Hing Ying Building, one of the early constructions in the campus of the University of Hong Kong, originally housed the student union. Financed by Sir Paul Chater, Professor G. P. Jordan and others, it was opened in 1919 by Governor Sir Reginald Stubbs. After World War II, the building was used temporarily for administrative purpose, later converted into the Senior Common Room for staff in 1974. It was named in honour of Mr Hung Hing Ying in 1986 for his family's donations to the University. The building was then used again for administrative purpose and now houses the Department of Music. This two-storey Edwardian style structure is characterized by a central dome and the use of red brick to emulate the Main Building opposite. The east wing was added in 1960. The building was declared a monument in 1995.
