Declared Monuments List in Hong Kong Island

The Exterior of University Hall, the University of Hong Kong (144 Pok Fu Lam Road)

University Hall which is situated on top of a hill at Pokfulam is a charming edifice in a blend of Tudor and Gothic architectural styles. It was built in about 1861 by a Scottish business, Douglas Lapraik as his headquarters and residence and named after him as "Douglas Castle". The French Mission later bought the Castle in 1894 and renamed it Nazareth House. Considerable alterations and extensions to the building were carried out by the French Mission, and a printing house was added. In 1953, the French Mission gave up the building which was then acquired by the University of Hong Kong in 1954. Since 1956 the building has been used by the University as a hall of residence for male students and renamed University Hall.
