HKUST(GZ) is situated adjacent to the Shawan waterway, with a number of river streams running across campus. The natural landscape blends with the campus architecture and echoes the waterfront landscape of Clear Water Bay (CWB). The overall campus plan aims to present iconic design providing high quality, state-of-the-art facilities conducive to the academic aspirations and research endeavors on thematic and cross-disciplinary basis. Continuing the spirit of the CWB campus, HKUST(GZ) will ensure health and safety management of all operations, and be developed into a sustainable smart and barrier-free campus, achieved through the use of high-end technology and green transport facilities.
