Tang Chi Ngong Building of the University of Hong Kong
Pok Fu Lam Road

The idea to establish a school of Chinese at the University of Hong Kong was proposed between the two World Wars. Construction of the premises began in 1929 with a generous donation from Mr Tang Chi Ngong after whom the building has been named. It was opened by Governor Sir William Peel in 1931 and since then further donation was received from the Chinese community for the endowment of teaching Chinese language and literature. The building was used for other purposes since the 1970s but the name remained unchanged. At present, it houses the Centre of Asian Studies. This three-storey flat-roofed structure is surfaced with Shanghai plaster and was declared a monument in 1995.
